Uttlesford District Council has produced a Local Plan that features a 5,000 house development adjacent to Great Chesterford.

If it goes ahead, there will be 30 years of construction, destruction of historic and natural environment, and massively increased traffic and pressure on services such as schools and hospitals.

This development has been proposed through political imperative rather than local need.

It will affect every village and town in a 10-mile radius.


Development is needed but not on this scale in this location.


Our communities have responded in their hundreds to the Local Plan consultation, and have now elected two local independent councillors who have pledged to fight for a better deal.

WE CAN MAKE A DIFFERENCE!

Elsenham and Henham successfully campaigned against and stopped a similar sized development across their two villages. We now need to make our case to the Planning Inspectors.

We’ve benefited from many hours of help given for free by individuals from the local community. Now we need to engage professional consultants, as well as a legal firm and a barrister. All of this is expensive. Great Chesterford Parish Council and StopNUTown have already contributed £35,000 towards legal fees in previous phases of the planning process.

Our best estimate for the cost of engaging relevant services from this point onward is £78,000. Great Chesterford Parish Council has allocated £23,500 towards this. We need to find £54,500.

We need to raise funds before we reach a critical point in the process in September.

Make a donation today! Help secure the best result for north Uttlesford. StopNUTown has already raised £11,000 towards this total.

Contributions can be made in name or anonymously.
