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.
