UTTLESFORD DISTRICT COUNCIL LOCAL PLAN UPDATE
30th April 2020
After £M's wasted over 9 years of indecision, the Draft Local Plan was scrapped by the new 'R4U' Administration.
January 2020: - The Joint Inspectors' report on Uttlesford's draft Local Plan has criticised its formulation, especially with regard to the proposed establishment of three 'Garden Villages'. The result of UDC's inactivity on its housing supply is that, instead of meeting the Government's 5-year housing supply it is now below 2.5 years. This means that it is "Open Season" for developers to apply to increase Stansted Mountfitchet's allocated housing target of 45, because of the insufficient housing supply figure caused by the paralysis of UDC governance.

A Neighbourhood Plan , with the added backing of the UDC's Local Plan, albeit in force since 2005, it is hoped it will provide some shift of the balance of power over to our community.
