Radlett Neighbourhood Plan Referendum Result – PRESS RELEASE

The Radlett Neighbourhood Plan Steering Group would like to thank all the residents who have voted in the Referendum to adopt the Radlett Plan. There were 2,842 votes cast of which 2,127 were ‘Yes’ votes.

It now means that, through the Plan’s policies, the voices of Radlett residents will be strengthened in all planning matters, which will help to retain and enhance the verdant character of the area.

The Radlett Plan has been a lot of hard work. It could not have happened without the many local residents who gave up their time to attend consultation events, sit on working parties or give important feed-back to the Steering Group.

During this difficult year for so many, it has been evident just how important our footpaths, cycle lanes and Green Belt are in helping to make Radlett such a special place to live.

The Radlett Plan will be an important document going forward to try and encourage a good mix of housing stock, so that first time buyers can come and enjoy all that Radlett has to offer and those wishing to downsize can stay living in the place that they love.

The Radlett Plan was produced by residents for all residents, no matter what their background or political allegiance. If you did not vote in favour, we hope that in time you can reap the benefit of the Plan.

Finally, the Steering Group would like to thank the Radlett Society & Green Belt Association, Aldenham Parish Council, Hertsmere Borough Council and the Radlett Plan’s Consultant for all the support they have given over so many years.

Now, the hard work begins to ensure that the policies in the Radlett Plan are implemented and the objectives within it are met in an appropriate way.

Democracy is alive and kicking and the residents of Radlett have spoken.

Thank you for doing so.

Statement on the Covid national day of reflection

A statement from Hertsmere Borough Council’s Managing Director, Sajida Bijle, on today, the Covid national day of reflection.
“Today marks one year since the country, and the borough, first went into lockdown. It is a solemn milestone, after what for many has been a difficult and challenging year.
“The Covid-19 pandemic has threatened our mental and physical health and wellbeing, it’s put businesses at risk, it’s had a huge impact on the education of our young people and it has cruelly taken people from their families and loved ones and ahead of their time.
“As is often the case during a time of great trials, this year has also brought out the best in people. I particularly want to thank all the volunteers who have given up their time to support others in our communities, whether by keeping an eye out for their neighbours, working at vaccination centres, helping with home deliveries or being a friendly ear when someone is feeling down.
“I also want to thank the council’s staff for their efforts to maintain essential services and help keep our communities safe during this unprecedented time.
“In memory of all those who have lost their lives, we are flying the council’s flag at half-mast today and will be observing the national minute’s silence at midday. In addition, we’re planning to work with our partners to create a suitable memorial space in the borough, one where residents can go to reflect on the impact of this terrible pandemic.
“As the vaccination programme continues, we can begin to look to the future with more hope and optimism than before. However it all depends on everyone continuing to play their part. Please keep following the rules; get vaccinated and do all you can to stay safe and ensure others stay safe.”
