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.
