Transport will be the topic next discussed by the Community Stakeholder Forum as the initial Uttlesford Local Plan consultation series approaches the half-way mark.

Providing high quality sustainable transport is a vital factor in tackling climate change, building strong local communities and a successful economy. Over the local plan period, technology will drive radical changes in transport, with profound implications for transport users and businesses. What does this mean for transport in rural areas and how can we plan for this future? 

The Community Stakeholder Forum - which is made up of independent community representatives with particular interests - will be discussing these points as well as how transport priorities can be delivered through the planning process at its next meeting, on 13 January 2021 starting at 7pm.

The meeting will be introduced by Andrew Summers, Strategic Director at Transport East, and chaired by Angela Dixon of Saffron Hall.

Visit the council's New Local Plan pages for details on how to watch the meeting live and to submit comments.

This will be the fourth key topic discussed as part of the nine-topic local plan consultation series following 'Where you live', 'Character and Heritage' and 'Climate Change'. The feedback from these 'mini' consultations will help inform the work in preparing a first draft of the new Local Plan. There will then be further consultation and opportunity for people to comment on the plan before it is submitted to government for inspection in late 2023.
