Draft plans setting out what developments will take place in Hertsmere, and where, will be out for consultation next month.

Residents interested in issues such as where and how new homes could be built, what the local high street looks like and the boundary of green belt land will be able to have their say during the six week consultation. The council's plan will guide development until 2027.

Councillor Harvey Cohen, portfolio holder for planning and localism, said: "These are critical plans which we want people to give us their views on as they will have an impact on people and the communities they live in.

"We have responsibilities to provide adequate land for development, whether that is for retail or for new homes, but we also want to ensure our high streets are supported, that our communities are safe and pleasants places in which to live and work, that areas are protected and that all the needs of our diverse communities are met."

The consultation will involve sending letter to residents who will be directly affected by certain significant proposals as well as all key agencies and service providers such as Hertfordshire County Council, town and parish councils and community organisations. There will also be public drop-in sessions across the borough.

The plans were agreed at the executive meeting at Hertsmere Borough Council’s offices in Borehamwood on Wednesday night.
