Important Changes to the Local Bus Service Network in Essex from 10th April 2016


From the 10th April 2016 there will be important changes to many of the routes, timetables and service numbers of bus services in Essex.

Passengers, particularly those using the bus to go to school or work, are strongly recommended to check for the revisions using the National Traveline Service, available at: shortly before undertaking their journey, so that they are aware of any changes that have been made.

The majority of dedicated school contract services, which are not open for use by the general public will not be affected.

Clean for the Queen day in Broomfield is Tuesday 29 March, the day after Easter Monday.




This is the day we encourage you to come to the parish office & collect litter-pickers, plastic sacks etc. You can then join others in tidying Broomfield on the day, or tidy your own area in your own time during the week.


Keep Broomfield Beautiful  


Thank you to Councillor Tim and Roger - more much appreciated Village Volunteers - who pruned the trees on Angel Green

**Rubbish post alert**




Broomfield Parish Council has installed another bin on our Recreation Ground - this time on the other side of Angel Meadow near the park benches – to hopefully stop all the rubbish that is often collected in that area.

Wednesday 17 February

Broomfield Village Hall


All across the country is a campaign to Clean for The Queen to clear up Britain in time for Her Majesty the Queen’s 90th birthday, which will be officially celebrated in June 2016.


When she came to the throne litter was not the problem that it is today. Food packaging, plastic bottles, takeaway meals and cigarette butts have all contributed to a growing nuisance that affects our wildlife, streets, countryside and sense of pride. What better way could we show our gratitude to Her Majesty than to clean up our country?


Whilst the official Clean for the Queen campaign ( is taking place on the weekend 4th, 5th and 6th March, in Broomfield we are dedicating a whole week from 28th March until 3rd April to Spring Clean Broomfield.


If you would like to get involved, please contact our Parish Office (441660) and leave your details. OR if you would just like to help in a smaller but still very important way, why not just pick up litter outside your own property. You will be surprised what a big difference this would make.


Broomfield is already a great place to live. Why not make it even greater by joining us in picking up for the Queen?


- Sue Hubble

Well done to everyone that sent one in before the deadline, it has been a tremendous effort all round.


What Happens Now?

The City Council will analyse all the responses and feedback to the Development Committee in March.

Then comes preparation of the Preferred Options document, which is due to be considered by the Development Committee in June, and then go out to public consultation between July and September. You can see the rest of the timetable for producing the Local Plan below.

It's likely we'll know what the preferred options are when the Development Committee meets on 9 June, otherwise the next meeting is 14 July. We'll keep you posted.
