Subject: Local Plan Proposed Submission
The Local Plan Proposed Submission Consultation is open until 23.59 on Wednesday 30 November 2016 and is available at: www.north-herts.gov.uk/localplan. The plan is the first item under Attachment, halfway down the page, with Preston on p 196. Attachment Sheet 1 Side B is the map of our area. This is the last opportunity for people to make their final comments on the Local Plan. This Plan will be submitted to the Planning Inspectorate as it stands accompanied by all representations which are made. All North Herts residents are invited to comment and indicate which aspects of the Plan they support and which they object to. Any representations against the Local Plan must be backed up with evidence as to why a proposal should be changed. Attached to this email are Guidance Notes for responding to the Plan.
The issues for Preston are the same as in the previous Plan: A revised settlement boundary, 21 houses in the field off Templars Lane and 2100 dwellings at Cockernhoe. A report on Wain Wood for NHDC is also attached to this email.
Representations can be made online, details of how to do this are on the website, by email to firstname.lastname@example.org., by post to: Strategic Planning and Projects Group, North Hertfordshire District Council, PO Box 480, M33 0DE.
If you would like a list of points which might be helpful on the Preston issues, please let me know (either directly or via the contact form) and I will email them to you. I expect them to be available by Monday 7 November following the next Parish Council meeting on Wednesday 2 November.
