This is the draft neighbourhood plan

We are finalising the published draft of this document, and we are now incroporating your views. This is the working document , this is the first appendix and this is the glossary of terms. You can click here to read the Design Guide. Once we have heard from you, no doubt there will be more work to be done as we build on your feedback.  Here is a link to the Epping Forest District Council's Neighbourhood Plan page for Ongar, and here is a link to the Neighbourhood Plan Committee's website, but you will find their facebook page more informative.

The consultation closed on 18th March and we are now analysing the results. Stand by and we will let you know what we find.

Notification of Formal Consultation on Ongar Town Council’s Neighbourhood Plan


(Regulation 14 Town and Country Planning, England, Neighbourhood Planning (General) Regulations 2012) 

The Ongar Town Council Neighbourhood Plan has been published for consultation. Statutory consultees have been contacted. If you would like to take part in the consultation, please see the information below:

 The consultation period runs from 21st January 2021 to 18th March 2021.

 If you require a hard copy of the plan to review or would like to make representations, please contact the Parish Clerk: on 01277 365348 or by email at

Following this public consultation process the Plan will be reviewed and submitted to Epping Forest District Council together with all the supporting documentation, setting out who has been consulted, how the consultation has been undertaken and how the representations have informed the Plan.

Epping Forest District Council will then invite representations before the plan is subjected to Examination by an Independent Examiner. Once any further amendments have been made the Plan will be subject to a local Referendum, if the Referendum is successful the Plan will be “Made” by Epping Forest District Council
