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.
Local Plan Matters, Issues and Questions
The Inspectors appointed to examine Uttlesford District Council's Local Plan have issued the Matters, Issues and Questions (MIQs) for stage 1 of the hearings. These have been published on the Examination documents page together with the examination guidance notes that set out the draft schedule for the hearing sessions and general information about the examination.
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).
