DOG FOULING - now an increasing problem in Braughing especially around the playing field area. If you witness a dog fouling incident, make a photographic record of the crime,if possible, and contact Environmental Services on 01279 655261 ext 3507 or email here>>>

Unanimous opposition to the planned development was voiced in the EHDC council chamber with a vote to accept the officers’ recommendation of refusal.

English Heritage stress the importance of
‘a sense of place’ and the need to preserve that.

Unsustainable over-development in rural communities is a death sentence for those areas. Rather than invigorating, it stifles, overwhelms and suffocates the community. Changing historical settlements for ever.
