Introduction
Braintree District Council, Colchester Borough Council and Tendring District Council (the
North Essex Authorities) have prepared a shared strategic Section 1 of their Local Plans in
order to comprehensively plan for the future of North Essex. This shared section contains a
commitment to meet the sub-region's housing, jobs and infrastructure requirements through
the planning and delivery of three new Garden Communities at Colchester Braintree Borders,
Tendring Colchester Borders and West of Braintree.
The North Essex Authorities’ Section 1 was submitted to the Secretary of State in
October 2017 and an Examination in Public was carried out at the beginning of 2018.
Following the appointed Planning Inspector's post hearing session findings (see 8th June
2018 letter*) the Authorities have been working on the following documents to address the
issues raised by the Inspector:
Revised evidence base - 10 documents
Additional Sustainability Appraisal
Suggested amendments to Section 1
These documents have now been approved by the North Essex Authorities for public
consultation between 19th August and 30th September. All consultation responses will
be sent to the Inspector for his consideration prior to making a decision to resume the
Examination in Public.
