The final Writtle Household and Youth Parish Plan and the Action Plan was distributed to all Households in the Parish. The Business Plan was distributed to all relevant Stakeholders.
1. Writtle Parish Plan was launched and endorsed by Writtle Parish Council and Parishioners at Writtle Annual Parish Meeting at the Village Hall on 21st March 2011.
2. A Parish Plan Implementation Committee was consitituted at that Annual Parish Meeting as a Sub Committee of the Parish Council, Gordon Ingram was elected as Chairman, all members were co-opted members of Writtle Parish Council for the purpose of that Sub Committee only (see 3 below for comment on subsequent progress).
3. At a later meeting of Writtle Parish Council held on 5th November 2011 it was agreed that the Implementation Committe, having made significant progress on most currently achievable actions, would be wound down with immediate effect. Accordingly all future implementation of outstanding Parish Plan Actions will be carried out by Writtle Parish Council, as recorded in the minutes of that meeting.

What is Writtle Future?
Writtle Future is the short name of a group that existed to oversee the creation of a plan for the future of the civil (that is, non-church) Parish of Writtle, in Essex. All village residents are automatically members.
The aim was to be pro-active - for local people to influence how the village should develop in future, not just to accept what happens.
How does it operate?
The process began with an inaugural public meeting (see below), then detailed consideration of responses during 2007, leading to a questionnaire to every house in early 2008. Replies where then analysed and published and a draft report published . The eventual outcome is the formal document that we as local people can use to influence local councils and other bodies.
Writtle Future's formal title is the "Writtle Parish Plan Association" and was set up in shadow form in Summer 2006. It is governed by a Constitution on the "Our Files" page.
The Inaugural Parish Plan Workshop
The inaugural workshop was attended by 65 local people on 9 September 2006. Many issues were raised for future discussion. For more information, go to the Workshop Comments in the Site Map column on the left of this Home Page or for a more detailed analysis go to Our Files in the same Site Map
