Preparation of the Radlett Plan - previous steps


A referendum on the Neighbourhood Plan for Radlett was held on Thursday 6th May 2021 in which anyone registered to vote in the area covered by the Radlett Neighbourhood Plan was entitled to vote.

Referendum question:

Do you want Hertsmere Borough Council to use the Neighbourhood Plan for Radlett to help it decide planning applications in the neighbourhood area? 

A simple majority of votes (over 50% of those voting) in favour of the Neighbourhood Plan was required in order for the local planning authority to 'make' the neighbourhood plan (bring it into force).

A total of 2,842 votes were cast, of which 2,127 were in favour.

Designation of a neighbourhood area

A neighbourhood area is the geographical area that the policies in the neighbourhood plan will apply to. Designating a neighbourhood area is an early step in producing a neighbourhood plan, and formerly indicates the area that the neighbourhood plan will cover.

A neighbourhood area designated covering the urban area of Radlett and its immediate surroundings was approved by Hertsmere in 2013.

A revised boundary was designated in 2016, following a six week consultation period (as required by Town and Country Planning, England,. The Neighbourhood Planning (General) Regulations 2012 and The Neighbourhood Planning (General) (Amendment) Regulations 2015).
