Results of the Public Consultation
As part of the Public Consultation we received over 900 responses from the public, businesses and other key partners. We have analysed these responses to help guide the selection of schemes to be taken forward as part of the Chelmsford City Growth Package. As the promoter of the package, we have also included a response to the public consultation to explain the decisions that have been made.
Baddow Road Bus Gate
One of the schemes included for consideration in the Public Consultation was Baddow Road Bus Gate. This scheme received a high level of comment and was linked to a petition from local residents. As a result, we have altered the proposal to:
- Reduce it to operate in the peak hours only (0700-1000 & 1600-1900); and
- To allow residents living between Meadgate Avenue and the Army & Navy to access the roundabout as they currently do.
Greater detail about the reasoning behind the proposals and how they will help Chelmsford is available in the following:

Baddow Road Bus Gate FAQs
It is regrettable that the public meeting regarding Baddow Road Bus Gate planned for the 25th January had to be postponed due to concerns for public safety. Great Baddow East Neighbourhood Association had invited the Council to speak at their meeting however it soon became apparent that their 200-capacity venue booked was not sufficient for the level of attendance on the night. We are keen to listen to residents’ views within a safe environment and are urgently looking at how to accommodate any future meetings. In the meantime, we have uploaded further related information above.
