Radlett Neighbourhood Plan

Last Modified November 12, 2018

Preparation of a neighbourhood plan for Radlett

There’s a further opportunity for residents and interested parties to comment on the latest draft of Aldenham Parish Council’s Radlett Neighbourhood Plan before it is submitted for independent examination. During this period of consultation, people will be able to have their say on what sort of development is encouraged, supported and expected in the area.

This period of public engagement period begins on 12 November 2018 and will last for six weeks. The Neighbourhood Plan, once finalised, will inform landlords, developers, investors and the council’s planning committee about the characteristics, unique challenges and opportunities in Radlett.

The plan will be available to view online and paper copies will be available from the Civic Offices in Borehamwood, Aldenham Parish Council offices and Radlett library.

You can comment on the plan from 12 November 2018 by using our online consultation system

All responses received will be forwarded to the independent examiner who will be appointed by the Borough Council in agreement with Aldenham Parish Council.

What happens next?

The Examiner will review the plan's content and issue a report, which is published by Hertsmere Borough Council. The Council then considers this report and determines whether any modifications are required before it can proceed to a referendum. 

Anybody registered to vote in the area covered by the Radlett Neighbourhood Plan will be entitled to vote. A simple majority of votes (over 50% of those voting) in favour of the Neighbourhood Plan is required in order for the local planning authority to 'make' the neighbourhood plan (bring it into force). At this point it becomes part of the development plan for the area and has to be taken into account in decisions on planning applications.

Previous steps

Previous Consultation

A previous period of consultation was held by Aldenham Parish Council between 17 July 2017 and 30 September 2017.

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.

In 2013 Aldenham Parish Council applied to us to have a neighbourhood area designated covering the urban area of Radlett and its immediate surroundings, and this was approved by Hertsmere.

After approving the area it was noticed that it overlapped the borough boundary, inadvertently covering a small part of the parish of St Stephen which lies within St Albans City and District. St Stephen parish were also producing a neighbourhood plan, and as two plans cannot cover the same area the Radlett plan boundary has now been amended.

We publicised the Parish Council's revised boundary for a period of six weeks (10 November to 22 December 2016) as required by government regulations [1], during which interested people were able to make representations. Following this a revised boundary was designated.
