Save our Village


A Walk around the proposed  development site "To the East of Elsenham"

The Fairfield Partnership has submitted a proposal for 350 new homes on land between Elsenham and Henham.

(reference UTT/17/3573/OP)

The Parish Council takes the view that while new residents are welcome, committed development is more than sufficient to meet local demand.

Appraisal of transport routes will clearly be crucial, especially the main exit via Grove Hill, Stansted.

Elsenham and Henham Parish Councils are again combining to obtain expert advice from both planning and transport consultants.

Individual responses from local residents are also very important.
