Consultation 2020

The most important issue facing the Parish is  the Neighbourhood Plan which has been a significant piece of work over 4 years. John Blake and his colleagues on the working group, have worked tirelessly to get us to the point that we are ready to go public. 2021 will be a very busy year as we promote the findings, work with Chelmsford City Council to bring our plan to a conclusion leading to a public vote on its adoption.

You can see an introduction to the plan by clicking this link.  It may need more explanation to make sense, so if you have any questions, please use our dedicated e-mail [email protected] and we’ll get back to you with answers as soon as we can.

Once adopted, the Neighbourhood Plan will form the planning framework for Broomfield, alongside the Chelmsford Local Plan.  The Local Plan has to cover the whole of Chelmsford, but our NP is able to concentrate just on what’s important for Broomfield.  It will add extra planning policies to protect what residents hold dear about our village.  It will also include ‘Community Aspirations’ that aim to get new cycle paths, traffic reduction measures, GP facilities, new woodlands and other things that we’ve been trying to achieve for the village over many years.
