Two Uttlesford consultations

If you can put the book to one side for a while, you may wish to respond to two consultations by Uttlesford District Council.


The first is a Draft Heritage List. The proposal is to give local listing status to assets that have not, at least yet, been afforded national listing status. Such assets would be recognized as being significant to the character of the area, thereby gaining some degree of planning protection. The consultation closes on July 4 and details can be viewed at


The second consultation, launched today, offers a final opportunity to comment on the draft Local Plan for Uttlesford District. This consultation ends on August 13 and can be viewed at:

Trustees needed for CAB








Do you believe in social justice & want to help change things for the better?


Uttlesford Citizens Advice is a charity created to serve the local community. We help around 3,000 clients each year with problems relating to benefit entitlements, debt and budgeting, housing, relationships, employment rights and health and care needs. 

We aim to work with people to try and fix the underlying cause of their problems, give them confidence to take action and to help them become more knowledgeable about their rights.  Problems don’t happen in isolation and solving them can stop situations from escalating.  Our advice helps to prevent homelessness and housing evictions, reduce use of NHS services and keep people in work – as a result we save society money.

Could you help run our charity?

We need to recruit two skilled trustees to join our board. Experience of using, working in or volunteering for Citizens Advice is not essential, just a willingness to give time and commitment to the role. We are looking for people with a wide variety of skills and a diversity of experiences but some knowledge of marketing / communications or human resources would be preferred.  The post of trustee is unpaid but will provide you with new challenges, the opportunity to give something back and great satisfaction!

The Board of Trustees hold 6 evening meetings and 2 daytime planning meetings each year.  All reasonable expenses are reimbursed.

We are particularly keen to achieve a more diverse board of trustees and welcome applications from all sections of the community.

For more information or an informal discussion about the Trustee role, please contact Richard Armitage, Chair, at  or call

Kate Robson, CEO, on 01799 526557
