Residents are being given the chance to share their views on the Essex Rural Strategy through a wide-reaching public consultation.
The Essex Rural Strategy sets out a vision for our rural areas to thrive. The strategy seeks to provide a framework and aspirational goals to ensure that social, economic and environmental aspects of our rural villages and hinterland are offering the best possible place to live and work. It will be used to influence local policy and to guide the priorities and actions of those who deliver services in rural parts of the county.
The public consultation is now open and residents will have until Friday, December 4, 2015 to share their views - click here to download the e-mail.
All Essex residents can take part in the consultation but Essex County Council is particularly seeking views from people who live, work or own businesses in rural areas and those who visit rural areas for recreation or access to services
