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.

Coffee with Cops, Friday 10th January, Friday 14th February and Friday 13th March
Following successful sessions last autumn, when several members of the public came to meet local police officers and pass on valuable information, we are very pleased to be able to announce that the police have booked three further sessions at the Parish Hall.
Come and meet members of our Local Community Policing Team at a 'Coffee with Cops' session in the Parish Hall, Committee Room 1, from 1.15 to 2.30pm on Fridays 10th January, 14th February or 13th March. Take the opportunity just to get to know the local team or to get some advice in an informal, friendly atmosphere over a coffee.
These sessions are held regularly in different venues in Chelmsford and Maldon. They are frequently held at venues in the city centre, so we are delighted that they are holding these sessions again in Great Baddow.
Next Parish Council Surgery on Saturday 8th February from 10.00 to 11.00am at the Parish Hall, in Committee Room 1
