Consultation Document Final Oct 2020

Remembrance Sunday Update – 8th November 2020

Remembrance Sunday


As previously advised, there will be a much reduced Remembrance Day commemoration this year.  In line with national guidance there will be a private wreath laying ceremony at the War Memorial but the Gardens will be closed to the public between 10.30am – 11.30am on Sunday 8th November 2020.


The wreath laying will be videoed and available on Social Media and our website after the event. We appreciate that many residents will want to take part and we would ask you to do this by standing on your doorstep for the 2-minute silence at 11am. The Royal British Legion has many suggestions on its website for how you can donate to their funds and to get your poppy. It also has a poppy that you can download and colour in to put in your window.

Public meeting – Police, Fire & Crime Commissioner for Essex

Please see below information received from Cllr Colin Day


Public meeting to be held live on Facebook by the Police, Fire & Crime Commissioner for Essex

Roger Hirst, the current Essex Police, Fire & Crime Commissioner has traditionally held at this time of year a public meeting in Uttlesford. Last year it was held in Saffron Walden and this year it would have been in Great Dunmow. Like many things the current situation with Coronavirus has prevented such gatherings. He has adapted his interface with communities using the platform of Zoom and is currently on a tour around the County. It is his intention to hold a “live” meeting on Facebook on:

Uttlesford Facebook Live PFCC Public Meeting *Date Change* to Tuesday 13th October @ 7pm

This as you appreciate is an opportunity for you and your residents to ask him and a panel of representatives from Essex Police, Essex County Fire & Rescue Service and myself (as Chair of the Uttlesford Community Safety Partnership) and questions that may be concerning you regarding policing in Uttlesford.

Kind regards, stay safe, stay well.



Green Homes Grants

Green Homes Grants

Homeowners and landlords in England can apply for a voucher towards the cost of installing energy efficient and low-carbon heating improvements to homes, which could help save up to £600 a year on energy bills.

The government will provide a voucher that covers up to two thirds of the cost of qualifying improvements to your home. The maximum value of the voucher is £5,000. You may be able to receive a higher level of subsidy if you are a homeowner and either you or a member of your household receives one of the qualifying means-tested benefits, covering 100% of the cost of the improvements. The maximum value of these vouchers is £10,000. Landlords cannot apply for the low-income part of the scheme.

Local Authorities will also be making support available for low income households in their local area through the Green Homes Grant: Local Authority Delivery. More information on participating Local Authorities will be made available on GOV.UK in due course.
