Maldon Local Plan

24th July 2017

Priti Patel MP has welcomed the final approval of Maldon District Council's new Local Plan being granted by the Secretary of State for Communities and Local Government. The northern part of Maldon District falls within the Witham parliamentary constituency and the approval of the Local Plan will help protect villages from unacceptable development. Priti, who has supported the Council and local communities through the Local Plan process, said:

“The approval of Maldon District Council's new Local Plan will be welcomed by communities across the District. The Local Plan will provide more certainty and clarity to villages and prospective developers on the appropriateness of new development and the locations where it will take place. A number of villages that have been targeted by predatory developers will be breathing a sigh of relief with this news.”
