Priti views Tiptree Neighbourhood Plan proposals

Published: 11th June 2019 - 12:44 pm Category: Local News

Local MP Priti Patel is calling on residents in Tiptree to take part in the consultation on a Neighbourhood Plan for the village. Attending an exhibition at Tiptree Community Centre to mark the start of a six week consultation period, Priti viewed the proposals and discussed them with Tiptree Ward Councillor Barbara Wood, representatives from the Parish Council and local residents. Priti said:

“I was delighted to see the exhibition and view the Neighbourhood Plan proposals for Tiptree at the start of the consultation process. Communities should be empowered in the planning process and Neighbourhood Plans provide an opportunity for them to do so. I would strongly encourage residents and businesses in Tiptree to engage in this process, take part in the consultation and help shape decision-making.”

“Local communities throughout this part of Essex face the terrible situation where speculative developers are proposing huge developments in inappropriate places and trying to force their plans through. This is putting pressures on our infrastructure and public services. Neighbourhood Plans can offer some protections by giving local communities the chance to shape and steer development in their area.”
