Politics / Fri 2nd Dec 2016 am31 06:21am

THERE are just two weeks left to send in your comments on the draft District Plan – a document that is set to shape the future of East Herts until 2033.

Based on extensive research and studies as well as legal requirements, the draft document sets out where housing and related development could go in East Herts over the next 16 years.

During this final six-week consultation, which ends on December 15, the council is asking whether people think:
the council has planned for the district’s housing, employment and infrastructure needs
the District Plan is based on sound evidence
the proposals can be delivered by 2033
the District Plan is consistent with national policy and enables sustainable development.

Before responding, people are advised to read a set of FAQs which will guide people as they prepare their comments. Along with all the other documents they can be seen at www.eastherts.gov.uk/presubmissionDistrictPlan

The Plan’s 25 chapters set out where housing and related infrastructure could go in East Herts up until 2033. It will help to ensure that schools, roads, GP surgeries and other essential facilities are built at the same time as new housing.

Council leader Linda Haysey said: “The District Plan sets out our vision, policies and proposals to guide future development and land use in East Herts to ensure that we’re meeting the needs of residents and creating the best conditions for jobs and economic growth.

“We’ve already received hundreds of responses to this final consultation and we hope that by the end, many people living in East Herts will have taken the opportunity to become familiar with the plan and to make their comments.”
