Good turnout for public meetings

Epping Hall was packed for Monday’s public meeting about the draft Local Plan, organised by the Epping Society. It was encouraging to see so many people interested in the future of our area. There were many good points made from the platform and from the audience.

The Epping Society has prepared an initial reponse to the draft local plan which doesn’t seem to be online yet but when available may help people put together their own responses. I’m doing a response with Janet Whitehouse which I’ll post here when ready.

I also went to the public meeting organised by Theydon Bois parish council on Thursday 10 November where many similar issues were raised and which will inform my response.

There is free parking in Bakers Lane car park opposite Epping Hall.
