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).
