Respecting our past, embracing our future

10 August 2016

Find out how the Essex Rural Strategy affects you.


Did you know that over 72% of land in Essex is classed as rural, but also 50% of parishes in the county have no Post Office?


A number of key priorities for rural Essex were set out at an event launching the new 5-year strategy, ‘Respecting Our Past, Embracing Our Future’. Highlights include:


  • Improved access to health care
  • Support for increased affordable housing
  • Broadband and mobile connectivity
  • The development of sustainable transport solutions
  • Ensuring the long-term future of local schools


If you are a resident or organisation based in a rural area of Essex, the new Essex Rural Strategy can help you to make your community a better place.
