Uttlesford District Council are seeking residents help to put together a new design code for Uttlesford

The design code will a planning document and used to help inform the preparation and assessment of planning applications for new developments.

The first stage in this process is a survey to understand what our residents like and dislike about the buildings, places and landscapes in Uttlesford, and which parts they feel are really distinctive to the district.

To inform this process we will be hosting 3 free walking tours in different parts of the district and follow accessible routes with regular resting points:

• Thursday 18 August, 6pm to 8pm – Great Dunmow

• Sunday 21 August, 10am to 12pm – Stansted Mountfitchet

• Sunday 21 August, 2pm to 4pm – Saffron Walden

The council is also encouraging local people to carry out their own self-led walking tours and the ‘Uttlesford distinctive places’ video has further guidance on this.
