In October 2016 Shenley Parish Council formally applied to Hertsmere Council for the designation of a neighbourhood area covering the Shenley Parish and the part of Shenley Cricket Club which is within Aldenham Parish.

We publicised the parish council’s submission in accordance with Government regulations. We allowed a period of six weeks between 10 November and 22 December 2016 during which interested people were able to make representations. No objections were received, and Hertsmere Borough Council’s Executive approved the designation of the Shenley Neighbourhood Area on 8 February 2017.

The minutes of the meeting will be made available on the council Executive meetings web page in due course.

What happens next?

Now that the neighbourhood area has been formally agreed by Hertsmere Borough Council, Shenley Parish Council can start the preparation of the Neighbourhood Plan in earnest and encourage the local community to get further involved. 

If you have any questions or would like to get involved with the Shenley Neighbourhood Plan please contact the clerk to the parish council on  or  01923 855 865, or visit the Shenley Parish Council website.
