Story

Easton Park is an ancient deer park dating back 700 years and more which though now used for agricultural purposes remains in exactly the same shape as when first mapped in 1594. The land has been acquired by Landsec which is proposing to build 10,000 houses on the park. This plan is ill-considered and unnecessary and would result in the destruction of a priceless asset for future generations. Just as the great parks of London were preserved by our forebears, so Easton Park should be preserved for future generations. Easton Park is an asset of increasing importance not only to Little Easton but also to the surrounding areas of Great Dunmow, Thaxted, Great Easton, Takeley and Broxted and to those who visit from far and wide. 10,000 houses would create an urban sprawl from west of Bishops Stortford to east of Great Dunmow and massive congestion.

Stop Easton Park is a local residents’ action group set up to support The Little Easton Parish Council in resisting this proposal. The proposal is part of a Local Plan which will be examined by independent Inspectors in July. SEP is raising funds towards the cost of the experts, lawyers and consultants, required to challenge the proposal.

Our fund raising was launched on 26 April with a target of £25,000. Over 50% of the target has been achieved from local fund raising but we now need the help of the wider community to achieve the target.

Please give generously and help us to reach our target
