Following on from the Kelvedon Neighbourhood Plan referendum in early
March 2022, where an overwhelming number of votes were cast in favour
of the NP, Parker Strategic Land decided to seek a judicial review and
therefore we had to wait for the decision of the court to be able to
proceed with formal adoption.
We’re delighted to announce that Parker Strategic Land are no longer
seeking a judicial review and therefore we expect the Kelvedon
Neighbourhood Plan to be formally adopted by Braintree District
Council on the 25th July. Once this has happened, the Neighbourhood
Plan will be applied to any forthcoming planning applications,
alongside the Braintree District Local Plan (also due to be adopted on
the 25th July), and will provide a much stronger framework to guide
future development in the village of Kelvedon.
Kelvedon Parish Council would like to extend their thanks to the
Kelvedon Neighbourhood Plan team for their extraordinary efforts on
behalf of the village and many thanks also to the residents, who have
taken the time to participate in consultations over several years and
turned up to vote in the referendum!
