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 :

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.
