Call for Sites and Strategic Land Availability Assessment

Uttlesford District Council has issued a call for sites as part of its work on a new Local Plan. Anyone may submit a site or broad location for consideration, and the Council will use this information when preparing draft policies and site allocations.

Please note:The Council is keen to receive site submissions for all types of land use, including - specifically - 'green sites' which may have benefits in terms of accessible open space, biodiversity gains and/or carbon absorption.

If you would like to submit a site for consideration, please download the Icon for word Call for sites submission form [95.54KB] and return a completed copy using the contact details provided.

In preparing your submission, you should have regard to the below mapping resources. While these do not contain all information against which sites will be assessed, they provide a useful indication of the opportunities and constraints facing different parts of the District.

Completed forms must be submitted by 5pm on Wednesday 21 April 2021.

The next step will be for the Council to carry out an assessment of each site. These assessments will not confirm which sites will be allocated in the new Local Plan, but they will be an important source of information when making such decisions.

The Council will publish the results of the call for sites exercise, and there will be an open public consultation once the Council has prepared draft policies and site allocations.
