Uttlesford District Council Local Plan

The current local plan is in development. More information is available here.

The previous local plan: UDC have produced a draft plan which sets the context for the development of housing and business in Uttelsford for the next 15 years. A consultation on its content was conducted from 12th July to 4th September 2017. Prior to the adoption of a new local plan the UDC 2005 Local Plan is the document against which applications for development are assessed.


Newport, Quendon and Rickling Neighbourhood Plan

The Neighbourhood Plan is a formal agreement for the long-term development of where we live. Residents are involved at every step via surveys, consultations and a referendum at the end. And once adopted we can use our plan to guide development in our villages. It is a legally binding roadmap for the future of our villages that we all decide. Visit for the most recent information on the Newport, Quendon and Rickling Neighbourhood Plan.
