Chelmsford Local Plan Consultations and Exhibitions

Chelmsford City Council has now published the final version of their new Local Plan for consultation. This is the Pre-Submission Consultation and contains the proposals intially consulted on last year that have been selected to go forward. The new development sites in our area and an adjoining area of Sandon have been selected to go forward, despite objections from the Parish Council and others. These are housing sites around Manor Farm, north of Maldon Road, land east of Sandford Mill Lane, and land south of Maldon Road, east of Molrams Lane. In addition there is a proposed employment area with an office/business park next to the Park & Ride.

The consultation is open from January 31st until March 14th and all comments made in response to the previous consultation need to be resubmiotted if they are to be considered. The examination by the Inspector is scheduled for Autumn 2018 and final adoption for the end of 2018/early 2019.

Exhibitions are being held at several venues, including Great Baddow Parish Hall on Monday February 12th, 4-8pm, and Sandon Village Hall on Thursday February 15th, 4-8pm. Officers will be available at both these exhibitions.

**The Parish Council will be discussing its response at its Planning Committee meeting on Monday February 19th, starting at 7.30pm.**

Special Constables for Great Baddow

At the full council meeting in December, the Parish Council agreed to pursue participation in the Community Special Constable scheme, initially funding two special constables for Great Baddow. Although we do not see this as a solution to the lack of local policing, we hope it will go some way to reassuring parishioners by providing a visible presence in the parish. However, there is a period of recruitment and training before new special constables become available to work independently in the parish they are going to serve.
