Extent of Metropolitan Green Belt and Map of Writtle Parish
Metropolitan Green Belt
The Parish of Writtle is considerably larger than the built up area of the village, as the maps show.
The areas shaded grey are Metropolitan Green Belt and under current legislation should be protected from development. The land described as Warren Farm not shaded grey north of the A1060 Roxwell Road is good quality grade 2 agricultural land and part is designated "Special Landscape Area" but it is not Green Belt and is at risk, being the only significant developable land in Writtle.
