The new Local Plan
As the local planning authority, the council is responsible for developing local plans, gathering the necessary evidence, and consulting with local communities, businesses and interested parties.
The new Local Plan for Uttlesford will bring together all major planning policy for the District into a single document. It will also need to meet the requirements of the National Planning Policy Framework (NPPF).
Assessment of culture, creativity and the arts
The Cultural Engine, an Essex-based social enterprise that develops social, economic and cultural projects, is working on developing a comprehensive 'baseline assessment' of culture, creativity and the arts to inform the Local Plan process. If you work or take part in the cultural, creative or arts sectors as an amateur or professional, the council would like to hear from you.
