The Essex Rural Strategy 2020-2024

It seeks views on a shared vision of a thriving future and helping to shape the priorities of those who provide services to rural communities.


Essex is a rural county with 72% of its land area designated as rural.

The Essex Rural Partnership brings together a wide range of organisations from the public, private and voluntary sectors to co-ordinate action on the major challenges facing the county’s rural areas. The Essex Rural Strategy has a four-year timespan - it is now time to review and refresh it, ready for a relaunch in 2020.

This consultation from Essex Rural Partnership runs from 24 February to 30 June 2020.
