The deadline for making comments on Chelmsford’s new Local Plan is Wednesday 14 March – don’t forget to have your say!
You can comment on the ‘Pre-Submission’ document, and its proposals for the number of homes, jobs and businesses 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 aim is to get the right type of development in the right places to meet the growing needs of local people and businesses, while protecting our environment. The consultation also covers draft planning policies, which will be used to determine future planning applications, and important sustainability and habitats assessments. Accompanying plans show these proposed site allocations, along with areas for protection.
You can make your comments by 4.45pm on Wednesday 14 March on the specially designed online Consultation Portal, please visit www.chelmsford.gov.uk/planningpolicyconsult
