Local Plan Update
The earlier draft of the new Local Plan prepared by Epping Forest District Council incluided provision for some 90 new houses to be built on Upper Houchin Field. However the final submission copy of the Plan was changed, (without explanation), to reduce the housing target to 14 dwellings to be located on the Gypsy Mead site, with reference to development previously proposed being completely removed. Although these changes remain a mystery, the final result is likely to be welcomed by many residents. Further information on the District Council's Local Plan is available from the dedicated website here;
In a separate development a legal challenge to the soundness of the draft Plan was been launched by a developer based in Theydon Bois. The Submission of the draft Local Plan was now been delayed whilst a judicial review hearing was held. After consideration, the Draft Plan was found to be sound and work on its completion now continues.
