As the Neighbourhood Plan moves closer to public referendum stage, we are again reminded if its importance in the never ending fight and vigilance against inappropriate developments.
The latest attempt, to build 260 houses on the edge of Felsted, was objected to by Felsted Parish Council, refused by Uttlesford District Council (with the support of our District Councillors), and has now been refused by an Appeal Inspector.

The battle goes on. Along with fighting applications for inappropriate developments within our Parish, we are now fighting an application to build 150 houses on our border with Rayne, which would put construction and resident traffic through Willows Green. Our objection can be read here.
