We adopted the Chelmsford Local Plan 2013-2036 in May 2020. In it, we identify the number and locations for houses, jobs and businesses we are planning for, along with the infrastructure needed to support growth.
This includes where children will go to school, where people will work, and how they will get around. It considers issues such as such as new roads, sustainable travel, access to the outdoors using green spaces and the wider countryside. We also include planning policies we use to decide planning applications, and settlement boundaries for our towns and villages to protect green spaces.
