If you had been wondering why news of the progress of the Neighbourhood Plan has been quiet recently, this is because we were all waiting patiently for the Parish Council to scrutinise the details of our draft submission document. This was no mean feat at 111 pages!
However, we are now pleased to be able to inform you that Knebworth Parish Council (KPC) approved the official Draft Knebworth Neighbourhood Plan during their February meeting. We feel that, not only is this a strong indication of the strength of the backing we have from KPC, but a considerable endorsement of all the work of the Steering Committee so far.
We knew that there would be several steps in the process to follow, but we were all somewhat surprised to learn that this process can be broken down into around 20 more steps! So, the work continues.
The three most imminent stages to be implemented are:
- Submit Strategic Environmental Assessment Screening Report to North Herts District Council
- Prepare Summary document for Knebworth Parish residents
- Distribute Summary with Parish Update newsletter – 6-week consultation and Open Day (March/April)
As usual, we will keep you informed, in the meantime please check the website for updated documentation and information.
