Join Chelgate Local and Bidwells for Breakfast in Essex!

Chelgate Local and Bidwells welcome you to attend our housing breakfast briefing on garden towns and villages, with a focus on north Essex, Harlow and Gilston.

The session will discuss what garden towns and villages are in terms of planning and development and how they are being progressed.

We will look at the Government’s objectives and how it is likely to accelerate development in the region, whether that be through funding or procedural measures. We will also look at the impact these large developments will have on the economic prosperity in the area.
