Neighbourhood plan for Castle Ward Plus, Hertford

Neighbourhood plans allow communities to have a direct say about challenges they have identified in their local area. These can include the development of residential housing developments, small businesses, local shops and other amenities, as well as the preservation of green spaces.

The overall aim is to ensure that future developments make a positive and beneficial contribution to the wider community and are supported by improvements to local services and infrastructure. In Hertford, Neighbourhood Plans have already created for Bengeo, Kingsmead and Sele and now it's the turn of the communities covered by Castle, Kingsmead West and Bengeo South wards.

Hertford Town Council is proposing that this area be known as Hertford Castle Plus. Once confirmed, the process of creating a Neighbourhood Plan for Hertford Castle Plus will begin. We will ensure that residents are kept fully up to date on next steps and how they can participate.
