Welcome to Highwood Parish Council’s website. Highwood is a small, scattered parish close to Writtle, on the western border of Chelmsford. There are approximately 270 dwellings with about 620 residents.
The parish is very rural and comprises five hamlets – Cooksmill Green, Edney Common, Loves Green, Highwood and Radley Green. Cooksmill Green and Radley Green in the north are separated from Edney Common, Loves Green and Highwood in the south by the A414.
Within the parish we have a primary school, a church, a village hall, and two public play areas.
The Parish Council meets bi-monthly on the third Monday of the month at 7.30pm in the Village Hall, Loves Green, Highwood CM1 3QG, although during Covid times this is on Zoom.
Parishioners are most welcome to attend the meetings as we have a public session on each Agenda.
