The full draft of the Plan and ancillary documents are all on the NPG website
It is a Local Plan for Hunsdon, separate from the larger one for the Gislton Development, so it encompasses the Parish Area less the part which falls withing the Gilston development, broadly the Airfield and Village 7.
We have put the draft plan through its first public consultation which finished in March this year and are now, as a Group and with our planning consultant, in the course of a full review all the responses to the draft Plan from residents, who gave it their overall support, and the statutory consultees like EHDC, Herts CC, Environment Agency, Historic England and local landowners. This process will take a couple of months. It may involve some further discussions with some of the consultees.
When this is concluded we will produce the next version of the Draft Plan with legal documentation, for East Herts DC to submit to the next round of Public Consultation.
On finances for the year ended 31 March 2021, all our funds, receipts and payments pass through and are part of the Parish Council Accounts but in summary:
Received during year: From Locality Grant (Central Government) – £3000
Total Paid during year: Planning Consultant – £4875 Administration £250 IT and Misc. expenses £250
The group has now started working through your comments alongside responses from other official consultees, stakeholders and landowners, as part of the review of the Plan before it goes to the next stage.
In February and March 2019 the Neighbourhood Plan Group commissioned a survey of residents’ views. Paper copies of the survey were distributed to every household and sent to every business in the Plan area, and an identical online survey form was provided.
An article drawing attention to the survey was published on local social media (inluding a link to the online form) and in the Village News.
The responses from that survey have since been combined and analysed and are being used to identify priority issues for the Neighbourhood Plan.
An interim summary of, and insights on the responses from the survey has been produced here.
