'Where you live' - it's time to have your say on the first Local Plan theme

The first of nine themes or 'mini-consultations' on the Local Plan will kick off on Wednesday 11 November.

Uttlesford Local Plan

This is the start of a six-month conversation about the things that matter to people in Uttlesford, which will contribute to how the district is shaped over the next 15 years or more. It is the beginning of a new kind of public engagement programme, providing the opportunity to share ideas, which will run until spring 2021.

In this first theme, Uttlesford District Council would like to know what you value about where you live and how you would like to see it improve in the future.

On 11 November, The Community Stakeholder Forum will be discussing what makes a neighbourhood special and the characteristics of a walkable neighbourhood. The conversation will be introduced by Dr Noha Nasser, architect and academic, debated by the Forum and chaired by Angela Dixon of Saffron Hall.

The event will be live-streamed from 7pm so that anyone can listen in. Pre-registration will be available via the Council's new Local Plan website.

Following the Forum the consultation is open for comments. Everyone is invited to read a short document on the theme of Where you liveand submit comments. After a four-week consultation the comments on the theme of Where you live will be summarised so they can be discussed by the Forum.

Information on the nine themes, the key dates and how to comment will be posted on the council's Local Plan website website and social media channels.
