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.

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.
