Local Plan

Chelmsford City Council is currently working on a new Local Plan, which will shape future growth and development in Chelmsford until 2036.

The new Local Plan will replace their existing plans, and they will continue to develop the new local plan over the next year, before they adopt it in early 2019.

They report progress on the Local Plan to their Development Policy Committee. At the next meeting on 18 January 2018 they will seek approval to consult on the Pre-Submission Local Plan. They will publish the committee papers five working days before the meeting. These will include the draft Pre-Submission Local Plan and supporting documents.  These will be available on the Chelmsford City Council website.
