If you picked up a form to feed back your views about the various sites in the Neighbourhood Plan last Sunday, don’t forget to fill it in and return it to the Parish Centre. If you didn’t pick up a map and a form, please note the size of one of the sites has been amended = you can see it elsewhere on this website.
Since the November 2015 consultation, 2 more sites have come forward. Site 8 which lies between, Lybury Lane, Redding Lane and the A5 and Site 9 which is a triangle of land on Hemel Hempstead Road near the Hemel entrance to the village. For the exact locations please refer to the revised map dated May 2016
Some comments coming through the site talk about the Neighbourhood Plan and the large number of homes proposed by the District Council out at Woodhall Farm. Please be aware that the Neighbourhood Plan has no influence over this large site, which is part of the Strategic Local Plan being put together by St Albans Council. A consultation has just started on the SLP, get in touch with St Albans District Council if you wish your comments to be recorded. The Neighbourhood Plan is all about smaller sites, with no more than 200 homes in the village over the next 20 years – probably even fewer! The Vision Statement relates to the Neighbourhood Plan. Any infrastructure needs for the strategic site will have to be addressed by St Albans District Council. Always delighted to hear your views on the Vision Statement and our emerging Neighbourhood Plan for Redbourn Village.
We have considered the sites in the light of the public consultation, and as previously advertised, the Greyhound Meadow site has been withdrawn by the landowner (Redbourn Parish Council). We have been approached by other landowners, and will assess and consult on new proposals in due course. Any new sites which landowners wish to propose must be presented with full details of the size of the land which is being put forward, whether it is being put forward for housing, employment, education or other purposes, and details of access to the site. We will then assess it with the help of our Planning consultant, as we did for the previously notified sites.
