Felsted Neighbourhood Plan Consultation

The Felsted Neighbourhood Plan Group (FNPG) has continued to work hard on our behalf to complete the Neighbourhood Plan.

The Plan has now been submitted under Regulation 16 to Uttlesford District Council. This triggers a six week formal consultation period prior to the plan being examined by an independent examiner and then moving on to referendum.

The Plan is important to us, not only to guide the way in which we want our Parish to develop in coming years, but also in our fight against the tide of inappropriate development proposals we are seeing. Many of these developments use the lack of a UDC 5 year housing supply as their justification for inappropriate developments. However, with an approved Neighbourhood Plan, Felsted will only need a 3 year supply to negate this argument, which exists.

The six week formal consultation period will run from Wednesday 12 June 2019 and close on Wednesday 24 July 2019 at 5:00 pm.

You can view the Felsted Neighbourhood Plan and associated documents via UDC’s website or hard copies of the documents are available at the Councils main offices in Saffron Walden.
