MASTERPLAN: Plan for Abbots Langley Village Centre published following talks with residents

 Published on: 22nd November 2022   |   By: News Bulletin   |   Category: Uncategorized

After Abbots Langley residents had the opportunity to have their say on improvements that could be made across the village centre earlier this year, the Masterplan for the village has now been published.

This 115-page document forms part of the Abbots Langley Neighbourhood Plan (ALNP).

The proposals presented in the Masterplan followed from a dialogue with local residents and businesses in the village.

This included two evening public workshops last June at the Manor House, interviews with local shopkeepers and discussions on local social media.

The Masterplan focuses on preserving historic assets, improving public spaces, proposals for specific sites for new development and means to encourage a higher footfall in the centre and encouraging sustainable travel.

In cooperation with the Vine House Health Centre, a separate feasibility study was done to determine the suitability of the Breakspeare School site to become a new expanded Health Centre after the school is relocated in 2024.

It is an ideal site for this purpose. More work is being done to prepare the business case for such an investment.

Planning communities in the Parish are based on ‘the twenty-minute neighbourhood’ planning principles.

A separate report on ‘Aspirations for Bedmond’ will be published in December.

The Final Version of the Neighbourhood Plan will be published on the Parish website in December ready for a six-week consultation programme before being formally submitted to the Three Rivers District Council for their evaluation and an External Examination before receiving approval for the public referendum later in 2023.
