The Channels development is currently split across two Parish Councils, Little Waltham and Broomfield. Both Broomfield and Little Waltham are in the same parliamentary constituency of Saffron Walden and both currently sit within the City Council & County Council wards of ‘Broomfield and The Walthams’.
The City Council has recently undertaken a Community Governance Review and the recommendations were approved at the Full Council meeting on 22nd March 2022. The recommendations will be implemented ahead of the city and parish elections in May 2023. All Channels residents will, from this time, sit in the new Chelmsford Garden Community Council.
More information, including those sitting on the Chelmsford Garden Community Shadow Council, can be found on the City Council Website.
