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.

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

Rugby Returns to Cobden Hill

With the move to Phase D on the Rugby Football Union’s Return to Rugby Roadmap Tabard RFC celebrated this milestone by hosting an RFU Pitch Up for Rugby day on Saturday 12th September at Cobden Hill.

The format adopted for the day was Ready4Rugby, the all new non-contact game (non-contact due to COVD-19) which enables two opposing teams of up to 10 players to engage in match activity.

The event was very much an intra-club affair with two round robin tournaments ably refereed by Herts RFU Society officials. The U13 & U14 boys fielded two teams of 10 players and the senior men & women plus U16 boys organised four mixed teams of 8 to 10 players. Some fine rugby was played in this fast paced game. Good handling skills and sharp lines of running were amply on display and all participants thoroughly enjoyed themselves.

The RFU was represented by their President, Jeff Blackett and he was given the warmest of welcomes by Tabard RFC club officials, supporters and members of the local community who came along to join in the fun. It was a pleasure to have Councillor Caroline Clapper with us on the day

and we were delighted that she found time in her busy diary to support this community event.

The RFU President took time out not only to commend Tabard RFC for hosting such a successful Pitch Up for Rugby event but he was somewhat inspired by the charity work that the club does with School of Hard Knocks (SOHK) and Plate for London. Having the founder and CEO of SOHK, Ken Cowen, and the Managing Director of A Plate for London, Laura-Jo Pearce in attendance added to all round success of the day.

The attached LINK provides an excellent short video of the event, encapsulates the day brilliantly and well worth a viewing.
