Finchingfield and Wethersfield Neighbourhood Plan

The Finchingfield and Wethersfield Neighbourhood Area application was approved by Braintree District Council at Cabinet on the 10th July 2023.

The Neighbourhood Plan group are now working on a draft Neighbourhood Plan


A joint Neighbourhood Area application was submitted to Braintree District Council by Finchingfield and Wethersfield Parish Councils for the parishes of Finchingfield and Wethersfield in April 2023 under The Neighbourhood Planning (General) Regulations (2012) as amended.

As the application covers two parishes as a single Neighbourhood Plan Area, a six week consultation period was required.

The consultation closed at 4:00pm on Friday 30th June 2023.

If you have any specific questions about the Finchingfield & Wethersfield Neighbourhood plan, or wish to get involved, please contact the Parish Clerks via or
