The High Court has dismissed a developer's legal challenge to the Epping Forest District Council’s Local Plan, paving the way for the Council to submit the Plan to the Secretary of State for Independent Examination (the challenge could, if successful, have had a significant effect on the progress of the Plan).
See the Council’s statement here – we will be considering the implications of the judgement.
Although the police station is no longer open to the public, the local community policing team is based there 24 hour a day, 7 days a week and handles 999 emergency calls and 101 calls. This team then deals with local investigations and lower graded crimes, such as common assaults. The CID criminal investigation team, also based in Loughton, also operates on a 24/7 basis and covers more serious crimes, such as burglaries and serious assaults.
Officers from the community police team will soon be allocated to their own beat areas. The officers will be making contact in the areas they have been assigned, and additional “pop up” meeting locations such as “coffee with cops” will be happening across the district.

Alderton Hill Closure|
Alderton Hill will be closed from the Roding Road to the mini-roundabout by Loughton station for around 5 weeks from end-July!
This will cause traffic chaos. The road is being closed this summer – and in summer 2019 – to replace the road bridge across the brook. More
LRA Cllrs have joined traders in protesting about the District Council rent increases for shops in The Broadway, which have suffered poor footfall – and poor trading - because of the months of roadworks. The effect will be to drive some small shopkeepers out of business. At the same time, the Council has encouraged competing retailers onto the Langston Road retail park on generous terms.
The Epping Forest Community Hub
This is now in operation; it’s a joint venture between the police and the District Council. A police sergeant and two experienced Constables are being funded and tasked by the Council to deal with local matters such as ASB.
