North Essex Garden Communities Issues & Options

The first stage in producing planning documents for each of the three Garden Communities is called Issues and Options.

A public consultation for each of the proposed plans took place between the 13th of November 2017 and 5pm on 2nd February 2018 (originally 22nd of January 2018).

This has been an opportunity for the general public to put forward their views on the main issues that will need to be dealt with in the development of the garden communities and to identify potential options to deal with those issues.

The feedback received will help with the more detailed stages of masterplanning.

All the responses are now published on the consultation portal

A series of exhibitions were also held for the public to find out more about the proposals and speak with the planning officers:
