Planning Our Future workshops


North Weald Bassett Community Workshop
25.01.2014 - 25.01.2014 10.15 h - 13.00 h
North Weald
Planning Our Future Public Drop in Sessions


Local residents are being invited to an interactive workshop on the future of North Weald Bassett.

The event is being held by Epping Forest District Council. It follows the decision by councillors to protect aviation in combination with limited housing development at North Weald Airfield over the next 20 years or so.

The views of residents at the workshop will feed into a council-led ‘Masterplanning study’ for the village of North Weald Bassett and the airfield which will also contribute to the new district-wide Local Plan.

Public participation

Councillor Richard Bassett, Planning Portfolio Holder wants to encourage maximum public participation. He said: “I think this is good news for North Weald. After years of uncertainty over the airfield, residents, airfield tenants and councillors are taking the initiative by producing the plans we want to see for the village. The workshop will be an intensive half-day of consultation and discussion designed to get the best ideas from local people who know the area best.”

The council has employed Allies and Morrison Urban Practitioners (AMUP) who are experts in the field to help produce the plan. The brief includes the identification of the viable mix of land uses and infrastructure for the village and wider area, long term Green Belt boundaries, potential development phasing, the relationship between the airfield  and the wider village, and ways to deliver the plans. Central to the masterplanning study is the commitment to maintaining aviation at the airfield while also planning for new homes, employment, services and infrastructure for local people.


Residents need to register in advance if they want to attend the workshop scheduled for 10.15am to 1pm on Saturday 25 January 2014.

The workshop is being held at North Weald Village Hall, High Road, North Weald, Essex CM16 6BU.
