Essex Rural Strategy

The Essex Rural Strategy establishes a ten year vision for the county’s rural areas to 2020, with a five year strategy from 2010 – 2015. The Strategy seeks to create a vibrant future for rural Essex, based upon six strategic aims:

  • Active and caring communities
  • Improved access to services
  • Greater availability of affordable housing
  • A thriving economy
  • A rich and varied environment
  • A responsive planning and policy framework

The Strategy guides and informs the work of the Essex Rural Partnership and its members. More specifically it will be used to raise the profile of rural Essex, identify priorities, inform and influence future strategies, encourage joint working and offer evidence and support for funding applications.

ERP is currently working to refresh this strategy, with the intention of launching a new document by early 2016.
