Neighbourhood Plans

Hertford Town Council is currently running in collaboration with the members of the local community the production of two Neighbourhood Plans for the Sele and Bengeo wards. 

Neighbourhood planning provides the opportunity for local people to develop a shared vision for the future development and growth of the area they live in. Local communities can choose to set planning policies through a Neighbourhood Plan that is used in determining planning applications and which are aligned with the strategic needs and priorities of the wider local area.

The Sele Neighbourhood Area Plan (SNAP) covers the Sele ward in Hertford. The project has commenced in May 2016 and it is currently at the stage of writing-up the Neighbourhood Plan document. A public consultation on the draft policies of SNAP took place on 19th April 2018 at Sele School Main Hall.

The Bengeo Neighbourhood Area Plan covers the Bengeo ward in Hertford. The project has commenced in June 2017 and it is currently at the stage of collecting evidence that will inform the policy directions of the Neighbourhood Plan document. A public exhibition displaying the results of the general survey applied in February-March 2018, as well as the objectives and policy directions for the themes of interest will be organised on Saturday 7th and Sunday 8th July 2018 between 1PM and 5PM at Bengeo Primary School Main Hall.
