South Essex Plan Consultation

Last Updated on

Rochford District Council wants to know how we should seek your views as part of the planning process for the ‘South Essex Plan.’

The six Local Authorities in South Essex (Basildon, Brentwood, Castle Point, Rochford, Southend and Thurrock), together with Essex County Council, are currently working together across local authority boundaries on strategic issues such as infrastructure, planning and growth to make sure that there are quality jobs, transport, schools and homes for their residents.

This work includes producing a ‘South Essex Plan’ that will set out a strategic framework for development in the area for the period up to 2038 and will reflect a broader vision to 2050.

As the first stage in the preparation of the South Essex Plan, a Statement of Community Involvement (SCI) has been produced. This will be an addition to the existing SCI of each Council and sets out a framework for how we will undertake consultation on the South Essex Plan.

To take part go to www.southessexplan.co.uk where you will also have the opportunity to sign up to a mailing list to be kept up to date on developments relating to the plan. The consultation will run for a six week period closing at 5pm on Monday 27 January 2020.
