WeAreResidents.org strongly object to the proposed July 2012 draft of the Uttlesford Local Plan because of poor sustainability, lack of required local job creation, traffic and emission impacts as well as other issues. WeAreResidents.org cannot understand why UDC are proposing a Local Plan site strategy which is so clearly contradicted by the evidence base that they have spent the last five years compiling.

UDC’s evidence shows that Saffron Walden, Great Dunmow and Newport cannot sustain the level of development now proposed; WeAreResidents.org urge UDC review the information presented in this document, along with the more than 3,100 individual opposition letters collected in Saffron Walden, and revert to the UDC’s long-held and evidence-supported position of primary development in a new settlement.
The following document provides the detailed and formal response from WeAreResidents.org to UDC as part of UDC’s public consultation process that ends on 23rd July 2012. It references the draft Uttlesford Local Plan and other supporting documentation provided by UDC on its website. It was delivered to UDC on 23rd July 2012 before the public consultation closed.
