Inquiry to get underway on village green plans

Last Modified November 25, 2021

Please note, due to unforeseen circumstances at the Planning Inspectorate, the inquiry will open on Tuesday 30 November, but will not continue on the originally planned dates. Instead, the inquiry will resume at a date in the new year, to be confirmed. Apologies for any inconvenience caused.

Members of the public are being urged to get in touch if they want to attend an inquiry on a bid to deregister a village green in Borehamwood being held later this month.

An Inspector appointed by the Secretary of State for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs will hold an inquiry to consider an application submitted by Taylor Wimpey last year to deregister the village green at Woodcock Hill, west of Vale Avenue, and exchange it for a neighbouring area of land. The inquiry will be held virtually and will begin at 10am on Tuesday 30 November, continuing on subsequent days as necessary.

A number of individuals have indicated their intention to speak at the inquiry. Anyone else wishing to attend the inquiry online or by phone must register their interest as soon as possible by emailing woodcockhill@pegasusgroup.co.uk.

Individuals who do not have internet access can view the webcast proceedings at our Civic Offices. To arrange to do so, please contact us on 020 8207 2277.

Copies of the application form, accompanying documents and inquiry evidence may be inspected here.
