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.aspx and on the plans dedicated website here https://www.radlettplan.org/
The referendum on the plan was due to take place on the 7th May 2020 at the same time as the local elections. As due to Covid-19 the local elections have now been delayed to 6th May 2021 (subject to legislative approval) the referendum has also been delayed. It is not clear yet if there will be a vote on this before the next local elections or if it will need to wait to then. If we get any updates we will inform you here.
