UTTLESFORD DISTRICT COUNCIL

Uttlesford is a thriving predominantly rural District in north-west Essex equal in size to half of Greater London, with international air (Stansted Airport), road and rail networks.  With both new development and a historic and rural environment it offers the best quality of life in England and Wales.

The Local Plan is a key corporate priority for Uttlesford, shaping the growth of the District over the next 15 years and beyond. Part of the growth strategy is to consider the development of new Garden Communities as well as the sustainable development of some of our existing towns and villages.

We therefore need people to come in and play a pivotal role in driving the Local Plan forward through the draft plan consultation stage this summer towards submission and the final adoption in 2018.
