Neighbourhood Plans

Hertford Town Council is currently working in collaboration with members of the local community for the production of two Neighbourhood Plans: the Bengeo Neighbourhood Area Plan (BNAP) and Sele Neighbourhood Area Plan (SNAP). 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. These planning policies will be aligned to the strategic policies in East Herts District Plan but they will highlight the needs and priorities of the local area.

Bengeo Neighbourhood Area Plan

The Bengeo Neighbourhood Area Plan covers the Bengeo ward in Hertford. The project commenced in June 2017 and the draft Neighbourhood Plan has been produced by the members of the community in Bengeo. The current draft document can be read here.

For briefness, a summary document has been prepared and it includes a short introduction together with the proposed policies and the proposals map, which are the statutory part of the Plan. This is available here and papers copies of the same document have been distributed to all residential addresses in Bengeo ward. 

We are pleased to announce that East Herts District Council Consultations for the Sele and Bengeo Neighbourhood Plans are due to start on Thursday 16th July 2020 and run until 10th September 2020.

See the East Herts website for more details:
