What is a Neighbourhood Plan?

A Neighbourhood Plan is a way for communities – in this case Kelvedon Parish Council, to take a proactive approach to deciding the future of the places where they live and work. Once ‘made’ (adopted) a Neighbourhood Plan has the same legal status as the district wide Local Plan, and will be used alongside the Local Plan in deciding planning applications that fall within its area. For more information please see www.braintree.gov.uk/consultNP

Toddler Playgrounds

Our toddler area on the Recreation Ground is now closed, until we install a brand new playground.

Please use the toddler play area just off Glebe Road instead – it’s a lovely enclosed area with various pieces of equipment and plenty of space to run around. See the map below for its location.
