REFERENDUM READY: Village to vote on Radlett plan

 Published on: 9th March 2020   |   By: News Bulletin   |   Category: Uncategorized

Aldenham Parish Council’s (APC) Radlett Neighbourhood Plan is now just one step away from being the first document of its kind to be adopted by Hertsmere Borough Council, after it was agreed on that the plan should proceed to a referendum. 

If more than half of votes cast during the referendum, which will take place on Thursday, May 7, the same day as the Hertfordshire Police and Crime Commissioner elections, are in its favour then the document will be used to help make planning until 2036.

Cllr Estelle Samuelson, chairman of the Radlett Neighbourhood Plan Steering Group, stated: “I would like to thank the councillors at Hertsmere Borough Council for agreeing to allow the Radlett Neighbourhood Plan (RNP) to go to a referendum on Thursday May 7.  

“The steering group has worked tirelessly throughout these past years and after several rounds of consultations with the public I believe the policies that have been drawn up will benefit Radlett enormously in the future.   

“The original aim of the RNP was to allow the local community in Radlett to have more of a say about how their village should evolve in the years to come, most importantly trying to preserve the lovely rural area that attracted them to come and live here in the first place.  

“The RNP belongs to the people of Radlett and I pay tribute to their patience in helping to get it to this stage of the proceedings.   It is now hoped that the required over 50 per cent of voters will agree with the Plan in order for it to be adopted. 

“Lastly I must thank all the Steering Group members, as well as the Parish Council Manager, for their professionalism and support throughout this lengthy process.  Hopefully, their commitment to this cause will prove to have been worthwhile for many years to come.”
