Public exhibitions will be held in three Uttlesford locations this month so that residents and businesses can find out more about the draft Local Plan.

Uttlesford District Council is preparing an evidence-based plan that will set out how the district will develop up to 2033, and needs to identify land for 4,600 homes, along with employment and other development, to meet the future housing needs of the district and to support the vitality and vibrancy of the local economy.

The exhibitions are drop-in events and are open to all. They will he held on:

  • Wednesday, 14 September, 5-8pm – Council Chamber, Uttlesford District Council Offices, London Road, Saffron Walden CB11 4ER
  • Tuesday, 20 September, 5-8pm – Helena Romanes School, Parsonage Downs, Great Dunmow CM6 2AU
  • Wednesday, 28 September, 5-8pm – Forest Hall School, Forest Hall Road, Stansted CM24 8TZ

Officers of the Council will be in attendance at each event to answer questions related to the work of the emerging Local Plan for Uttlesford.

While not a formal consultation, the event will be an opportunity to find out more about the scope and purpose of the Plan, as well as the housing sites currently under consideration.

A decision on the sites which should be chosen will be made by the Council in early November. The exhibition provides an update on this work, and also explains how everyone can make their views known on the chosen sites at that stage in the plan making process.
