Essex County Council has produced a document titled Meeting the demand for school places in Essex – 10-year plan 2018 - 2026 (PDF 1MB), which outlines the growing need for school places across Essex over the next decade. Its purpose is to set out:
- the context within which school organisation operates in Essex
- the demand for school places over the next 10 years within each of the county’s quadrants (Mid, North East, South and West) and the local authority’s plans to meet it
- the solutions already under consideration and in development, in order to do so in the immediate to mid-term
- the possible options to address demand for the longer-term, as it arises in the future.
This document will be updated on a yearly basis.
