Local Plan News from the Parish Council -
updated 27 October 2017
The Inspector for the Local Plan has received a number of comments that not enough time may have been set aside in the hearings session timetable for discussion of some issues. As such, the timetable has been amended, with the site allocation hearings being moved from November 2017 to February 2018.
The Parish Council is pleased to report that that the Inspector has taken our comments on board, and sites IC1, IC2, IC3 and LS1 will all be discussed in the same session. This session will take place on Tuesday 27 February 2018 at 9am. All the hearing sessions will be held in the Icknield Centre, Letchworth, and are open to members of the public to hear what is being discussed. We think it is important for as many residents of Ickleford as possible to attend our session to show the Inspector the strength of feeling that there is in our village.

We will use this additional time to consider our written statement for the hearings alongside the changes to the Local Plan that we should suggest to the Inspector in this submission. We will update you on these deliberations at a future Parish Council meeting.
