The Parish of Great Oakley consists of the village of Great Oakley and the hamlet of Stones Green together with parts of the surrounding rural area of the Tendring District in North East ESSEX.
This website is intended to support residents and potential visitors to the Parish with information and contacts. It is also used by the Parish Council to make available details of its activities together with information provided to us by Essex Police, Tendring District Council and other local sources. It is also intended to carry details and notice of local Community activities and initiatives together with locally organised events and achievements.
The latest stage in TDC's consultation on their Emerging Local Plan - a recently received document raises questions and invites comment on any the questions raised.
Deadline for responses direct to TDC is 13th October 2015.
First sight suggests that their is little or nothing of concern to our Parish in this document - click here to download a copy - the document now introduces three separate alternatives for a new 2,500 to 3,000 home "Garden Village", to be located near to Jaywick, Tendring or Weeley. There appears to be no concern for our Parish but it does again invite people to submit potential development sites. These would, we have been told be for consideration, over and above what has previously been submitted, discussed and included in earlier drafts of the Emerging Local Plan.
