Chelmsford City Council is continuing to consult on its draft Local Plan, including drop-in exhibitions throughout the consultation period.
The ‘Preferred Options’ stage of the Local Plan consultation identifies how many houses, jobs and businesses are being planned for and their locations for the period up to 2036, along with other things needed to support growth, such as where children will go to school, where people will work, and how they will get around.
The Council wants to encourage as many people and organisations as possible to have their say on the Preferred Options document and on its sustainability and habitat assessments.
The Council has arranged drop-in exhibitions throughout the consultation period, which runs until 4.45pm on Thursday 11 May 2017. As well as several village locations, the exhibition will visit High Chelmer Shopping Centre, Chelmsford, from Monday 24 to Friday 28 April. The exhibition will be on display all day, and will be staffed from 11.30am to 2.30pm.
