Plans for Debden’s New Village Hall 2020

The design for Debden’s New Village Hall has been prepared by architects Plater Claiborne working to a brief drawn up by Debden Village Hall Trust and the New Village

Hall Group following extensive consultation with both residents and user groups. 


The new hall will be built on the site of the existing pavilion, planned to be replaced to the east side on the recreation ground. Large windows on the northern elevation of the new

hall will take full advantage of its position overlooking the recreation ground.


These plans were shown at the Parish Assembly in the village hall on Wed May 15 2019 at 8pm, and submitted Oct 24th 2019 to UDC planning Dept. View the plans on The Build Page, or Uttlesford District Council Planning Ref: UTT/20/0376/FUL
