WeAreResidents.org has been invited to be a participant in the Planning Inspector’s hearings on the draft Uttlesford Local Plan, and we were there all the first week.
The first week of hearings were primarily about how many houses Uttlesford must build, where they should be built, and can the major roads cope. The Inspector is experienced, well read up on UDC’s draft Plan, and seems fair and considered.
The Inspector asked some tough questions of UDC. You can read our summary and observations of the first week on Dan Starr’s blog on the Residents-for-Uttlesford website.
Discussions about details of the exact sites are held in the second hearing week, scheduled to start 2nd December at 10am at UDC’s offices on London Rd in Saffron Walden.
