Statement Regarding the Wethersfield Conservation Area Leaflets

Parish Council Meeting 17th July

Conservation Area Changes


A leaflet has been circulated anonymously about the above to residents of Wethersfield.  Whilst we accept that this is well meaning it could be misinterpreted as suggesting that it is the Parish Council which has proposed the alteration to the conservation area.  We wish to make it absolutely clear that this is not the case.  This is an initiative by Braintree District Council about which your Parish Council has very serious misgivings which will be expressed at the meeting.


We agree that everybody who has an interest in the future of the village should make an effort to attend and have no other issues with the leaflet.
