Pre-applications that the Parish Council is currently aware of - updated 07 December 2022

Note: A​pplicants may seek to communicate with the Local Planning Authority (NHC) prior to submitting a planning application. Parish councils are sometimes made aware/asked to be involved at this stage. For larger developments the guidelines are that applicants should undertake some community engagement.

 

L​and at Hunts Close (North of Ashwell Street between the Ruddery and Lucas Lane)

The Parish Council has received a pre-application communication from the agent acting for Manor Oak Homes.

They are to attend the January 2023 council meeting (postponed from December) to present further information and there will be an opportunity to ask them questions. As is the usual practice at this pre-application stage the Parish Council has said that they would be pleased to receive information so that they can then publicize this to parishioners but that they will not be entering into any discussion or expressing any opinions. As with any potential development of this nature what an applicant might subsequently propose in their formal planning application submission to NHC could change substantially. The Parish Council will wait to receive a formal consultation from NHC and will listen to the views of parishioners before agreeing its own response.

L​and at Dixies Meadow (High Street)

The Parish Council was approached in late October by Jarvis Homes Ltd, acting on behalf of the landowners, to attend the November meeting to give a presentation on plans being prepared prior to making a formal application to North Herts Council for development on this site. The Parish Council advised Jarvis Homes that we would be pleased to receive information so that we could then publicize this to parishioners but that we would not be entering into any discussion or expressing any opinions at this pre-application stage. As with any potential development of this nature what an applicant might subsequently propose in their formal planning application submission to NHC could change substantially. The Parish Council would wait to receive the formal consultation from NHC and listen to the views of parishioners before agreeing its own response.
