0 have signed. Let’s get to 1,500!

Uttlesford District Council (UDC) is proposing to permit 5,000 new houses on land adjacent to Great Chesterford - a development known as North Uttlesford Garden Community. 

Please spend 2 minutes of your time to indicate your feelings on the proposal and help us build a case to present to UDC.

Visit to read about the key points that make this proposal completely unsustainable and follow us on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter @StopNUtown!  Key issues are:-

  • Landscape & Environment - wildlife, light pollution, historical significance
  • Transport - road & rail network, congestion, pollution
  • Infrastructure - schools, healthcare, leisure facilities
  • Impact on all surrounding towns and villages
  • Lack of detail, supporting evidence transparency in the documentation

The residents of Uttlesford, and particularly Great Chesterford, Little Chesterford, Saffron Walden, Ickleton,  Hinxton and the Abingtons, have already raised their concerns and objections about the NUGC development to UDC via their consultations and continue to protest against it. It is essential that everyone who is concerned about the proposals joins the campaign and makes their voices heard.

As well as following us on social media and joining our events what you can do right now is sign this petition. Every bit of pressure helps. When you leave your comment please add your village too if you feel comfortable doing so. 

Thank you

On behalf of the NUGC Action Group
