RESIDENTS have only a few days left to get their draft Local Plan comments back to Epping Forest District Council. The six-week consultation deadline ends at 5pm on Monday 12 December.


Planning portfolio holder Councillor John Philip has been delighted with the response. He said: “We already have over a thousand replies and more come in each day.

Most people are responding online via the website. We have also received many replies by email but no one is excluded.

We are receiving paper questionnaires and letters through the post. People are responding individually and as part of groups.

Our local town and parish councils have also played a big role in getting people involved as well as submitting their own replies.

I would like to thank everyone who has taken time and trouble to respond. It is great to see so many people engaged in the process.”

As of 9am on Monday 5 December, Epping Forest District Council had received :

601 online (website) replies
261 emails
41 paper questionnaires
96 letters
More replies have been received hourly as people make sure their views are taken into account before the deadline.

The online option www.eppingforestdc.gov.uk/planningourfuture has proved most popular but people can also send their replies by email to [email protected] or by post to Freepost EFDC LOCAL PLAN RESPONSE.

Councillor Philip added: “This is a genuine consultation. I really want to hear your views. I can’t promise I can give everyone exactly what they want but your information can change the Plan.

Give me good sound planning reasons why you like or dislike things in the Plan.

With your help, we will have the evidence we need to defend the Plan when it is submitted for examination by a government-appointed inspector next year.

Please don’t miss out. Send you comments by 12 December and help us produce the best Local Plan we can.”
