The Braintree District Draft Local Plan was approved for consultation by Council on the 20th June 2016 and between the 27th June and the 19th August 2016, we asked for your views on the Draft Local Plan 2016 and the sites and policies contained within it.

Responses and amendments to the Draft Local Plan have been made, and a revised - Publication Draft Local Plan 2017 has been produced and consultation on that document ran until 28th July 2017. The Plan was then submitted to the Palnning Inspectorate on 9th October 2017

To read the Draft Local Plan 2016 document and responses made in 2016 please go to our online consultation portal.
