Radlett Neighbourhood Plan

Since 2015, the Society has been assisting the Parish Council with researching and drafting what is hoped will become its first Neighbourhood Plan. This Plan will shape the future of Radlett by taking more control of day -to-day planning and giving guidance of what is appropriate development through the use of ‘planning briefs’.

The details of the proposed plan can be found here – https://www.hertsmere.gov.uk/Planning–Building-Control/Planning-Policy/Radlett-Neighbourhood-Plan

There was a public Hearing to discuss the the plan on Wednesday 16th October – further details can be seen here – and the meeting notice can be seen here – Radlett NP Public Notice 2

    I believe that if the APC is allowed to sell off part of the Scrubbitts wood area for development described as “affordable rent flats” it would be against the terms of the Radlett Society which exists in part to preserve the countryside. I believe that Scrubbitts wood should be preserved for future generations and not be sold off and urbanised as described in the Annual Report of the APC. This is an amenity which is now and always should be for those without (or with) gardens to be able to sit and picnic or to wander through the area and see the natural habitat of plants, trees, birds, insects and wildflowers. If the APC considers that part has to be used for anything else it should certainly not be an outright sale. The early descriptions of this site were down-playing the area and were totally inaccurate and I wonder how they might explain how this error crept in. As the Radlett Society will know that the site is of tremendous commercial value and fronts onto one of the most expensive roads in Radlett. This has been corrected in the latest APC report.
