Freighter House Open Day, Saturday September 9th

Chelmsford City Council have asked us to publicise this open day at Freighter House, when residents can learn about recycling, waste and street care services. You can meet their friendly collection crews, learn about the different collection vehicles, take part in a tour/quiz and see the large amount of recyclables that they frequently collect. Freighter House will be open from 10am to 2pm, and is at Drovers Way, Boreham, CM2 5PH.

Chelmsford City Growth Package Consultation

It was good to see that so many people attended the consultation exhibition held in the Parish Hall on Monday 7th August.

The Parish Council Planning Committee will be discussing the Council's response to the consultation as part of its meeting on Monday 14th August. The meeting starts at 7.30pm and there is a public question time to enable residents to put forward any views they may have. However, this is not a substitute for making your own comments in response to the consultation - the more comments individuals send in the better.

Disabled Access Ramp to the Parish Hall

On 3rd August a low loader lorry crashed into the front wall of the Parish Hall and the neighbouring shop. As you can see from the picture, the wall was demolished and the ramp entrance damaged;  the ramp entrance to the hall is unfortunately unable to be used until further notice and access is via the steps only. We are working with our insurance company in order to enable repair work to be undertaken as soon as possible.

Chelmsford City Growth Package Consultation (CCGP)

This consultation is about proposals to improve journeys around Chelmsford and there are important implications for Great Baddow, in particular a proposal for a Baddow Road Bus Gate. This would ban cars from travelling towards the city centre along Baddow Road from its junction with Meadgate Avenue, not just in peak times but for 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. This will obviously have implications for traffic elsewhere in Great Baddow, such as increased traffic coming through the village to access the Baddow Bypass. It is also stated that heavy goods vehicles may be redirected down Meadgate Avenue; at the same time, the long awaited Great Baddow cycle route is also proposed to be signed down Meadgate Avenue.

To access the proposals, click here and go to the document for the proposals for South and East in particular.

Essex Highways are organising some information events around Chelmsford, including one at Great Baddow Parish Hall, from 1pm to 8pm on Monday 7th August. We would urge as many people as possible to view the proposals and attend this event. We would also encourage as many people as possible to reply to the consultation, which closes on 28th August. The Parish Council will be replying to the consultation and will welcome your views.
