The Local Plan provides a vision and framework for addressing the housing, economic and infrastructure needs of the district for years to come, including where proposals will be located and what they will look like.


This is the start of a 6 month conversation about the things that matter to people in Uttlesford, which will contribute to how the district is shaped over the next 15 years or more. It is the beginning of a new kind of public engagement programme, providing the opportunity to share ideas, which will run until spring 2021.

After each stakeholder meeting a mini-consultation will open and residents are encouraged to respond, there is a four week window for respnses, however Uttlesford will accept further responses up until the end of the six month period.
