Chelmsford Local plan review consultation

Chelmsford City Council has launched a consultation regarding a review of its local plan and is considering areas for future development.  The consultation remains open until 6th October 2022.

Further development is being considered within and in the near proximity of the Parish of Little Waltham including suggestions for further development in the vicinity of the new Chelmsford Garden Community.  A summary for the Parish of Little Waltham from the City Council states - 

Does the Local Plan Issues and Options consultation document identify new development around Little Waltham Parish?

The consultation document only identifies broad locations rather than specific boundaries for development. 

Great Waltham and Little Waltham are Service Settlements outside the Green Belt in the adopted Local Plan.  The Service Settlements of East Hanningfield, Ford End, Great Waltham, Little Waltham, Rettendon Place, Woodham Ferrers are identified as locations having the potential for 500 new homes in Spatial Approach C. This overall figure might be at one of these six locations or split across two or more of them.

Chatham Green is identified, alongside Howe Green and Rettendon Common, as being settlements with good proximity to transport corridors.  These locations are identified as having the potential for 1,500 new homes in Spatial Approach D. This overall figure might be at one of these three locations or split across two or more of them.
