HOUSING plans for the entire east of England will undergo public scrutiny this week, prior to a two-month consultation.
The East of England Regional Assembly (EERA) is holding a public meeting at the Chelmsford Record Office, Wharf Road, Chelmsford tomorrow (September 3) from 7pm.
Members of the public will have the opportunity to listen to the plans and then will be encouraged to participate in the consultation which runs from September 2 to November 24.
The consultation will seek responses to four scenarios for housing growth across the region including two possible new settlements within 10 miles of Great Dunmow. Responses and evidence provided through the public consultation will help EERA to develop a draft revision to the East of England Plan including housing targets to 2031.
