A120 Standon Improvements

Here is an excerpt from the leaflet HCC (Herts County Council) recently delivered to all local households; it concerns potential improvements to the A120 at Standon as part of the corridor between the A10 and M11 :

As you may be aware, Hertfordshire County Council (HCC) is progressing plans for a road bypass of Little Hadham. This is part of the existing policy for this A120 corridor between the A10 and the M11, agreed in 2006. Consideration of potential improvements at Standon are also part of this policy, so we are now investigating key constraints and opportunities in delivering these.’

Open Day's Update     13/02/2016

The SPNDP would like to thank everyone who braved the miserable weather to attend our two open day events. We had a better turnout than anticipated with bundles of great feedback that will be valuable for our evidence gathering. Your feedback and questions will not go unnoticed and where possible will be incorporated into the plan.
During the presentation we ran a PowerPoint presentation that many members of the public requested a copy of. We promised to upload it to our website so you can read at your own leisure. Please find it here.

What is a Neighbourhood Plan?

Neighbourhood Planning allows communities to have their say in the way that their local area is developed (within limits).   It will set out where new development will go, what kind of development it will be, and what sort of facilities are needed to shape all aspects of our village life, including welfare, schools, leisure, quality of life, jobs, conservation and the environment. It will be subject to a local referendum vote, and if it is adopted it will have legal force and be taken into account when planning decisions are made.

Throughout the process the Steering Group intends to hold community events where we will seek your views on what should be in the plan and what approach we should take on a range of issues. 

Make sure that you sign up to our mailing list to find out more about our progress.
