Sele Neighbourhood Plan Consultation

Sunday 10 March 2019

Hertford Town Council is currently consulting on the final draft of the Sele Neighbourhood Plan, ahead of formal submission to the District Council.

The Sele Neighbourhood Area Plan will help guide the future development in the Sele ward up to 2033. The Localism Act of 2011 gave communities the right to have a say about the future growth in their area.

The policies contained in the Neighbourhood Plan will be used in determining planning applications, will provide guidance for developers and will inspire local residents to enjoy and improve their area.

Policies included in the plan cover matters such as:

  • Recreation and green space
  • Conservation and biodiversity
  • Listed buildings, park and gardens
  • Housing Development
  • Education facilities
  • Community buildings and land
  • Healthcare facilities
  • Shops
  • Parking, public transport and cycling

The Plan was prepared by the Sele Community Steering Group (SCSG) through consultation with residents and other stakeholders in the ward. 

Printed copies of the plan can be obtained from the town council at Hertford Castle, the Town & Tourist Information Centre in The Wash, and Hertford Library in Maidenhead Street.

The consultation runs until Friday 22nd March 2019.
