Planning Information

Local Plan News from the Parish Council -  November 2017
The Ickleford-specific hearing of the Examination in Public (EiP) of the Draft Local Plan has been postponed to 27 February 2018. As such, the Parish Council only need to send the submission to the Inspector in mid-January. We will take the intervening time to refine our submissions based on, for example, the EiP hearings which are taking place now. The final documents will be reviewed and approved at the Parish Council meeting on 4 January 2018, but the Local Plan will also be an agenda item at our 7 December meeting.

Update from the meeting with Bim Afolami MP on
20 September

Members of Ickleford Parish Council, along with colleagues from other villages in north Herts, had a very positive meeting with our MP, Bim Afolami, on 20 September about the planning and development pressures in rural communities. Mr Afolami acknowledged the many flaws in the planning system, and has arranged a meeting with the Leader of NHDC, Cllr Lynda Needham, to review in some detail the impact of the NHDC Local Plan. To aid his discussions, we have provided Mr Afolami with information on the possible consequences of the proposed developments in Ickleford. That letter can be found here. Mr Afolami advised that he would update us on the outcomes of his meeting with Cllr Needham, and has requested a follow-up meeting with us towards the end of the year to advise on his progress on other actions he is undertaking in this sphere.

The Ickleford Neighbourhood Plan – your chance to help shape the future of your village
The Parish Council believes that it would be a promising idea to create a Neighbourhood Plan to help shape the future of our village, and we are asking for your help to do so. The Plan would be sponsored and supported by Ickleford Parish Council, but needs to be driven by a team made up from the wider village community.  It would be the team’s responsibility to create the Vision, Objectives and Policies which make up the Plan.
Further information can be found here, and please do contact Cllr Miles Maxwell to find out more -  or 17 Witter Avenue, Ickleford, SG5 3UF
