Local Plan Examination. The Inspector examining Uttlesford's Draft Local Plan has stopped his inquiry. He did this on two principal grounds - he considered the overall number of houses in the Plan to be too low and he had concerns about the enlarged Elsenham scheme. The Council notes however, that the Inspector also said that "much of the plan is sound". The purpose of holding a Local Plan inquiry is to test the extensive background work that is required to produce a draft document. The Council has always sought to balance the need for new housing with the importance of protecting the district. The Inspector has indicated that in fact there should be an even higher number of houses than is currently in the Plan. This is something the Council will have to consider, along with the concerns expressed about Elsenham.

The Inspector will be issuing a formal statement before Christmas.
