A Village Design Statement for Earls Colne

For the past three years a small committee formed from parishioners and members of Earls Colne Parish Council, have been compiling a Village Design Statement. This document describes Earls Colne as it is now and puts forward guidelines as to how the villagers would like to see it in the future. Public consultation took place in the form of a questionnaire in 2005 and several public exhibitions. Braintree District Council have accepted the document as part of Material Planning Consent.

We received a grant from the Community Planning Fund enabling us to have copies printed for every household in Earls Colne.

A digital version of the Village Design Statement can be found in pdf format on the Braintree District Council Website.
