On this website you will find contact details of council members.

Agendas for forthcoming meetings and minutes of meetings are also available and may be downloaded.

You can also find other information about the Parish Council and Elsenham.



Under the Localism Act 2011 where a Parish (or Town) Council has a web site, the Council is required to publish the register of members interests.  In order to comply with this requirement, the link below provides access to the Uttlesford District Council website where full details of interests are given for each of the Councillors of Elsenham Parish Council.







Public exhibitions will be held in three Uttlesford locations this month so that residents and businesses can find out more about the draft Local Plan.

Uttlesford District Council is preparing an evidence-based plan that will set out how the district will develop up to 2033, and needs to identify land for 4,600 homes, along with employment and other development, to meet the future housing needs of the district and to support the vitality and vibrancy of the local economy.

The exhibitions are drop-in events and are open to all.

They will he held on:

Wednesday, 14 September, 5-8pm – Council Chamber, Uttlesford District Council Offices, London Road, Saffron Walden CB11 4ER

• Tuesday, 20 September, 5-8pm – Helena Romanes School, Parsonage Downs, Great Dunmow CM6 2AU

• Wednesday, 28 September, 5-8pm – Forest Hall School, Forest Hall Road, Stansted CM24 8TZ

Officers of the Council will be in attendance at each event to answer questions related to the work of the emerging Local Plan for Uttlesford.

While not a formal consultation, the event will be an opportunity to find out more about the scope and purpose of the Plan, as well as the housing sites currently under consideration.
A decision on the sites which should be chosen will be made by the Council in early November. The exhibition provides an update on this work, and also explains how everyone can make their views known on the chosen sites at that stage in the plan making process.

All documents related to the Local Plan are available at www.uttlesford.gov.uk/planningpolicy





There is to be a Public Consultation to be held between 4th August - 28th September 2016 on this bus service.

More information about this consultation should be available soon, details of which will be given in the Elsenham News.




Code of Conduct 

Pursuant with the requirements of the Localism Act 2011, Elsenham Parish Council at its meeting held on Monday, 2nd July resolved to adopt a new Code of Conduct with effect from that date. A copy of the Code may be obtained by applying to the Parish Council Clerk (Mrs. Louise Johnson) or by going the the Code of Conduct page on this site and downloading the document.



 Village Inspections

Members of the Parish Council carry out an inspection of the Village periodically in order to identify problems and faults which require attention and repair and this information is passed on the the relevant authority responsible - e.g. Essex County Council Highways Dept., Uttlesford District Council, or the relevant public utilities company.

However, if members if the public do spot a problem, the problem can be reported directly to the relevant authority, or if unsure of who to talk to the Parish Clerk (or one of the Parish Councillors).
