 Update : The Travellers Friend Public House, Epping Green

Further to the Parish Council zoom meeting on 9th November it was agreed that there is significant interest in a residents group being set up to look into making a bid for the pub to be run as a community site. 

Confirmation of this will be sent to EFDC to invole the moratorium period under the community asset listing. 

A further meeting has been set up on zoom at 7pm on THURSDAY 19th NOVEMBER for ANY RESIDENTS who wish to be involved in this group going forwards.

Further to the meeting held on 20th July 2020, the application to nominate the Travellers Friend as an Asset of Community Value has been accepted by EFDC as follows:

Re: Application for Registration as An Asset of Community Value the Travellers Friend Public House, Epping Green, CM16 6PU

The Council has determined that the nomination you made on behalf of the Epping Upland Parish Council shall be accepted and the above premises added to the list of Assets of Community Value.

Pursuant to the provisions of the Localism Act 2011, the listing of the Travellers Friend Public House means there is a moratorium on disposal for a period of 6 weeks. During this 6-week period the Parish Council may register its interest to bid for the site. Should you do so, this will create a further moratorium period on disposal for 6 months. After the 6-month period the owner may dispose of the site, to whom they wish, which may not necessarily be the Parish Council.

The owner can request a review of the decision to list the site as an Asset of Community Value pursuant to section 92 of the Act within the next 8 weeks.

Confirmation has also been received that McMullens intend to sell the Pub. This means the Parish Council has 6 weeks (from 9/10/2020) in which to formally notify the owner whether they intend to bid for the premises. The Parish Council do not currently have funds available to purchase the pub as discussed at the meeting but made the application on behalf of the community to give any residents or community groups the opportunity to make a bid. If notice is given to EFDC that this is going to happen then there will be a moratorium on the sale for 6 months. After which the owner can sell to whomever they wish.

We are therefore asking any interested residents or community groups to contact the parish council if they want to discuss this or register their interest. Please email : eppinguplandpc@gmail.com before 16th November 2020 in order for us to go back to EFDC with a decision. Full Details below:

Epping Upland Parish Council is one of the oldest and original parish councils.  The first Council meeting of the newly constituted Parish of Epping Upland was held on 16th April 1896 at the National School in Carters Lane Epping Green.  Meetings have been held regularly ever since, although the National School building no longer exists.  Council meetings are normally held in Epping Green Chapel at 7.00pm on the third Monday of the month, bi-monthly from May (subject to statutory or policy requirements).

We maintain and manage the Village Playground, Allotments, Millennium Garden, Parish Burial Ground, War Memorial and Village Green.  Councillors comment on Planning Applications as well as considering and responding to consultations affecting residents of the Parish.  Where appropriate Councillors or the Clerk represent the Parish at meetings and events; details are in the Minutes which can be accessed from the menu on the left.

If you have any ideas on how the Parish can be enhanced for residents, have any concerns or think the Parish Council can help you please contact the Clerk.  Appointments can be made with councillors which generally take place before Council meetings but if the matter is urgent this can be arranged sooner.  Councillors' contact details are in our Newsletter and in the Councillors section on this website, see menu on the left.
