The deadline for representations is 29 November.

Once again the area is under threat from a large-scale development, this time off Bedwell Road, which is the continuation of New Road from Elsenham Station.

The application is for up to 220 new homes between the M11 and the railway line, with road access just before the bridge carrying the M11.

Elsenham, Henham and Ugly Parish Councils will rigorously oppose this application. The traffic from this development would either travel along the twisty road across Ugley Green to the B1383 north of Stansted or go down New Road into Elsenham and add to the congestion in Station Road and beyond.

As before the major issues are the large amount of recent new housing, the difficulty of road access, pressure on the school and surgery, and loss of landscape and agricultural land.

You can object by sending an e-mail to planning@uttlesford.gov.uk with the reference UTT/19/2266/OP as the subject.

You need to include your name and address and give your own views on why the application should be rejected.
