Chelmsford City Council

Consultation on Writtle Neighbourhood Plan


About Neighbourhood Plan consultations

Town and parish councils, or other organisations, can take the lead in creating neighbourhood development plans, community plans and orders for planning in their area. We will help to create the plans, and make decisions at key stages.

Writtle Neighbourhood Plan referendum

The Writtle Neighbourhood Plan has been developed by Writtle Parish Council.

It covers the whole of the parish, and includes planning policies on the environment, village character, development and transport. It also proposes principles for development for land at east Chelmsford (Warren Farm), which we have already allocated in the Local Plan.

The draft plan will proceed to a local referendum within the Neighbourhood Area. This follows an independent examination carried out by written representations.

The referendum will be held on Thursday 21 October. You can view our Upcoming elections page to find out about the referendum and how you can vote.

We will announce the results of the referendum on Friday 22 October 2021. If the majority of people who vote support the draft plan, we will adopt it and it will become part of Chelmsford’s Local Plan.
