COGGESHALL NEIGHBOURHOOD PLAN

Coggeshall is developing a Neighbourhood Plan which will help shape the future growth of the town. This will give local people a chance to choose where they want new homes, shops and offices to be built, have their say on what those new buildings will look like and what infrastructure should be provided.  A Steering Group of local volunteers is helping to write the Plan, which will go out to public consultation as it evolves over the next two years. If you would like to see some of the work that has been done so far please click on the ‘Coggeshall Neighbourhood Plan’ menu at the top of this page.

Discovering Coggeshall Book

This is the website of The Coggeshall Society, which was established to stimulate an interest in conservation and planning for the parish of Coggeshall.

In 2010 the Society began a community project – Discovering Coggeshall, to establish accurate dates for the timber-framed buildings in the centre of the town in order to trace how Coggeshall developed over the centuries.

The website will be of interest to anyone interested in the history and development of Coggeshall.
