Parish Council for the village of Fyfield in Essex
Parish Council Vacancy
We have a vacancy for a new Parish Councillor to make up our team of 7. Dealing with a wide range of matters the Parish Council owns and manages a number of local facilities such as the Sports Field adjacent to the Village Hall and the Burial Ground at St Nicholas Church. We look at all local planning applications and provide and support a range of community activities including the popular Fyfield Cinema Club and the regular "Cofee with Cops" events.
The Parish Council generally meets every month on the first Monday. These meetings are held at the Village Hall usually starting at 7:30pm. The role of Councillor is voluntary and we hope to fill this vacancy for the year ahead until the next elections scheduled in May 2020.

Development Proposals for the Gypsy Mead Site
Planning application EPF/0016/19 for a housing development on the Gypsy Mead site were submitted and considered at the Parish Council meeting on 4th March 2019.
On balance the Parish Council decided to object to the application due to concerns that the proposed development did not adequately address local housing needs and sought high density housing that was inappropriate for the site.
In addition, concerns over the potential impact of the development on existing drainage facilities in Fyfield was raised.
The matter is now with the Planning Authority (Epping Forest District Council) and we anticipate that the application will be considered most likely at either a meeting of the local Area Plans Committee or perhaps the Development Committee.
Furrther news will be reported here.
