Community consultation event from CALA homes for proposed housing development at Burford Grange
Please click here to view a flyer from CALA Homes on their proposed housing development at Burford Grange, Bedford Road. This is site IC2 from the North Herts District Council Local Plan. The Inspector's report into the Local Plan is yet to be published, and the Parish Council and many residents raised fundamental objections to the inclusion of this site during the public examination of the Local Plan. CALA Homes are within their rights to proceed with the pre-planning application processes despite the absence of the Inspector's report, but the Parish Council believes their actions to be premature.

Ickleford & Lower Stondon session of the
Examination in Public,
We would like to thank the many residents that attended the Hearing session on Tuesday 27 February 2018 to demonstrate the strength of feeling about the sites included in the Local Plan for our village. We now await the Inspector’s Report, which we understand may be some months away. Whilst we cannot predict  the outcome of the Inspector’s deliberations, please be assured that your Parish Council presented a strong case to the Inspector to challenge the Local Plan proposals for Ickleford.

Submission for the Examination in Public
- NHDC Draft Local Plan
At the Ickleford Parish Council meeting on 4 January 2018, our submission and supporting appendices for the Ickleford and Lower Stondon session of the Examination in Public (EiP) were reviewed and approved. These have been sent to the Inspector.

Your Parish Council believes that there are significant flaws in the NHDC Local Plan as it relates to our village and its immediate surroundings. The submission builds on the issues raised in our response to the initial consultation, bringing to the Inspector’s attention related, additional material. This is supported by detailed, associated data in the appendices. Our submission also lists carefully considered requests to make the Plan sound. Further information about the Examination, including supporting documents, can be found on the NHDC website.
