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.

Census 2021 help from Communities First

On Sunday 21 March 2021, everyone in England and Wales will have to fill in the Census questionnaire. Most households will soon start to receive access codes so they can fill in the form online.

The Census is a unique survey that happens every 10 years and started in 1801. It gives a snapshot of all the people and households in England and Wales. It calculates key statistics about who lives in the country – from age to relationship status. It then passes this information on to organisations such as local authorities and charities, so they are better informed as to how to provide services.

It’s important that everyone fills in the Census questionnaire. Without the information you share, it is more difficult to understand our community’s needs and to plan and fund public services accordingly.

Community First are currently a hosting centre for Census 2021, so if anyone or someone you know may have difficulty filling in the online form, please get in contact with Community First so they can assist them.

Community First will be running the hosting centre at their Community Hub, 5 Leeming Road, Borehamwood, WD6 4EB.

Rapid Testing available in Hertfordshire

 

Rapid testing for anyone without coronavirus symptoms is now available across Hertfordshire. 

Key and essential workers who cannot work from home during the current government restrictions are especially encouraged to book a rapid test every few days to help us ensure that essential services are as safe as possible.

Around one in three people with coronavirus do not show symptoms, which means they could be spreading the virus to family, friends, co-workers and into the community without realising. Knowing if you have coronavirus even though you do not have symptoms means that you can protect your loved ones and help to stop the spread of the virus. 

Free rapid tests (also known as Lateral Flow Tests) are available by appointment only and bookable up to a week in advance.  You’ll need to take your booking confirmation email/text to your appointment and have your mobile phone with you (please ensure it is charged). Results are sent by text and email in 45 minutes.

  • To book a rapid test, please visit www.hertfordshire.gov.uk/rapidtest . Please check the website regularly for updates as several new test centres have opened across Hertfordshire.
  • If you have symptoms of coronavirus you cannot have a rapid test and must not go to a rapid test centre – instead please book a standard coronavirus (PCR) test at www.gov.uk/coronavirus
