Draft Local Plan timetable update

Uttlesford District Council is progressing in shaping the draft version of a new Local Plan, along with the supporting evidence base due to be published in October.

The council is working towards a plan that will ensure the right level of development occurs in the most appropriate locations and is supported by the most important types of infrastructure where it is needed and that has the greatest value to the local communities. 

The next stage of the plan-making process - known as Regulation 18 - is important as it is the point at which the council will publish its draft Local Plan for consultation, that will include any proposed development sites. The public will be able to have their say on the proposals that are put forward. Details of the draft Local Plan (Regulation 18) consultation will follow in due course. 

In the meantime, residents can find out more information about the Local Plan process, including what happens at each stage, on the council's website:
