This petition had 1,122 supporters

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 Village. A public consultation has been launched by the Council, but only runs until 4th September – now is the time to make your feelings on this subject heard!    

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 Twitter @nugvag2017!  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,  are invited to write to UDC before the consultation ends to raise concerns and objections about the NUGV development. It is essential that everyone who has concerns and will be impacted by this makes their voice heard by 4th September, which is when the consultation period ends. If you'd like to view the comments already left by others follow this link:

As well as writing to the district council 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
