North Essex Garden Communities

Not sure if I missed this story in the local rag, or they just decided not to publish it in case anyone was actually interested.

It concerns: The Shared Strategic Local Plan for North Essex includes proposals for three cross-boundary garden communities. The development of these communities is expected to begin within the Local Plan period 2017 – 2033.

The three Garden Communities are:

  • Tendring Colchester Borders Garden Community
  • Colchester Braintree Borders Garden Community
  • West of Braintree Garden Community

The Councils are committed to producing a separate planning document on each of the Garden Communities which will eventually become a detailed masterplan for each community.

The first stage in producing planning documents for each of the three Garden Communities is called Issues and Options. There will be a public consultation for each of the proposed plans.  These are taking take place between 13 November 2017 and 5 pm on 22 January 2018.

Responses are strongly encouraged between these dates via the consultation portal which is being hosted by Braintree District Council’s consultation portal where you can choose which plan you wish to view, read the document and answer the consultation questions.

Please click here to access the portal.

This is an opportunity for the general public to put forward their views on the main issues that will need to be dealt with in the development of the Garden Communities and to identify potential options to deal with those issues.

The feedback received will help with the more detailed stages of master planning.

The document and the response form will also be available to download soon.

If you choose to complete a form rather than use the online consultation portal you can return it in the following ways:
