Uttlesford Draft Local Plan drop-in exhibitions
A series of drop-in exhibitions have been held across the district for residents and businesses to find out more about the proposals in the new Uttlesford Draft Local Plan.
About 700 people attended the events, which were held in Takeley, Saffron Walden, Manuden, Great Dunmow, and Newport.
Cllr John Evans, Portfolio Holder for Planning, said: "It was encouraging to see such attendances and enthusiastic participation at the exhibition events, with so many people coming out to discuss the draft local plan with officers and members.
"There is now a little more than two weeks before the consultation closes, and we would encourage everyone to visit the UDC website to find out how they can have their say. We encourage and welcome all feedback and the comments made will help to shape the plan."
For anyone who was unable to attend the exhibitions, the display panels are available on the council website. An information point providing a more general overview of the draft plan can be viewed during normal opening hours at the Uttlesford District Council offices in Saffron Walden.
In addition, a consultation information booklet was also delivered to Uttlesford households last week. A digital copy of the booklet can also be found on the website.
Submitted comments will be accepted up to 5pm on 18 December.
