Thank you for getting involved
This is your Local Plan. Thank you for getting involved.
We wanted as many people involved and providing us with feedback on the Draft Local Plan as possible. We therefore undertook the following activities to let people know about the Draft Local Plan, the public consultation, and how they could get involved.
We are now analysing this feedback and will publish a report later this year to update you on the feedback we received.
What we did to consult the people of Epping Forest District?
We used the following activities to publicise and seek feedback on the Draft Local Plan:
