Developing the new Local Plan

Developing the new Local Plan

We are currently working on a new Local Plan, which will shape future growth and development in Chelmsford until 2036.

The new Local Plan will replace our existing plans, and will make sure that the right types of developments are built in the right places.

We will continue to develop the new local plan over the next year, before we adopt it in 2018.

We are currently at stage 2 of developing the new Local Plan.
