CONSULTATION to plot a course for Uttlesford over the next 10 years is underway.

The consultation is conducted by Uttlesford Futures, the district's local strategic partnership - a collaboration of organisations including the district and county councils, police, fire service and the NHS - which works to plan for the district's future.

It considers social, environmental and economic factors and seeks to identify ho services can be improved between now and 2018.

Underpinning the work is the Sustainable Community Strategy, a comprehensive document created last year which set out the partnership's aims and how it hopes to achieve them over the next decade.
