About the Walden Plan
Under the Localism Act 2011, residents have been given new rights and powers to shape development in their communities via Neighbourhood Plans. The emerging Walden Plan is the Neighbourhood Plan that is being created by Saffron Walden residents and their Town Council. It is anticipated that the Walden Plan will be ready for local referendum in 2017.
The Walden Plan may be found on the web at www.WaldenPlan.org, on Facebook at www.facebook.com/waldenplan and Twitter at www.twitter.com/WaldenPlan. The Saffron Walden Town Council can be found at www.saffronwalden.gov.uk.
