Consultation on Chelmsford’s new Local Plan closes at 4.45pm on Wednesday 14 March – don’t forget to have your say!
This consultation stage, called the ‘Pre-Submission’, identifies how many homes, jobs and businesses are being planned for and their locations for the period up to 2036, along with other things needed to support growth, such as where children will go to school, where people will work, and how they will get around. The aim is to get the right type of development in the right places to meet the growing needs of local people and businesses, while protecting our environment.
The consultation also covers draft planning policies, which will be used to determine future planning applications, and important sustainability and habitats assessments. Accompanying plans show these proposed site allocations, along with areas for protection.
