Great Baddow Parish Council represents a population of about 15,000 people and provides many facilities, including meeting places, sports and recreation facilities and cemeteries. We are a long-established parish council and celebrated our centenary in 1994. Despite Great Baddow being classified as part of urban Chelmsford, residents still identify strongly with it as a village and one of the Council’s main aims is to foster our village identity and community spirit.
There are over 30 listed buildings in Great Baddow and there is a conservation area at the heart of the village. Major housing developments from the fifties onwards have contributed to its present size and there has been a long association with Marconi and later BAE Systems. A former Chain Home Radar transmitter tower is a prominent feature on the outskirts of the village, where it has been used by Marconi and BAE to test equipment, and is represented on our village sign.

Village Conference 25 April
You will receive a warm welcome at the Parish Council's Annual Village Conference on Thursday 25th April 2019. It will be held at the Parish Hall, 19 Maldon Road, Great Baddow, starting at 7.30pm; councillors will be available for informal chats from 7pm onwards. At the meeting you will hear about what the Parish Council has been doing over the last year and there will be plenty of opportunity to ask questions and discuss issues, as well as hear from the Police and Neighbourhood Watch.
Please note that the meeting is in the Parish Hall, not the Bell Centre, which the Parish Council no longer leases.
