Have your say on Hertsmere Borough Council's local plan policies

Watford Observer: Have your say on council's local plan policies Have your say on council's local plan policies

A council is inviting residents to have their say on where and how new homes could be built, what the local high street looks like and the boundary of Green Belt land.

Hertsmere Borough Council is running a six-week consultation period on their local plan from today until April 14.

All local authorities must have a local plan which sets out how and where their area could be developed, and with what. The council's plan will guide development in the area until 2027, and includes identifying development sites and also includes detailed planning policies to guide decisions on individual planning applications.

For Bushey, sites identified for potential housing include land at Rossway Drive for an estimated 61 homes and Birchville Court and the adjoining haulage yard on Heathbourne Road for an estimated 39 homes. Sites to be removed from the green belt include the print works at Bushey Hall Golf Course.

For Radlett three sites - Burrell & Co, the former Radlett Fire Station (which has planning permission for housing) and the adjoining Radlett Service Station/Regency House - are allocated for housing. As part of the consultation, letters are being sent to residents who will be directly affected by certain significant proposals as well as all key agencies and service providers.

A public drop-in session will be held on Tuesday, March 25 between 12pm and 8pm at Bushey Country Club.

For Radlett, this session is being held on Thursday, March 20 between 4pm and 8pm at The Radlett Centre, Aldenham Avenue, Radlett WD7 8HL.

LSC says...

Are Liberal Democrats and the Braying Public invited too?

What is the point? The Council have already decided the meaning of Green Belt is worthless and Conservation Areas can just be withdrawn or simply ignored at will.
Will the head of the Planning Committee be attending this 'consultation'?
Will they be giving personal apologies for insulting the residents of Bushey?
Will they bring proof that some residents of Bushey are prejudiced towards a particular religion, as claimed, and not simply people like me who quite reasonably believe planning laws should not be ignored and flouted on religious grounds?
Are they going to bring the police again to keep people from having their say?
