Welcome to the Shenley Neighbourhood Plan homepage
Shenley Parish Council, along with many volunteers from the local community, are currently working on a Neighbourhood Plan for Shenley village and the surrounding area.
You can also sign up to our mailing list here.
If you’d like to get involved, you can come along to any of the working group meetings or the steering group meeting, dates of which are listed to the right of this page. (Please inform the Clerk in advance if you intend to come to a meeting.)
We continue to be very concerned that Hertsmere seem to want to build 9,000 new homes and put a high number of them in Shenley Parish. It was very encouraging that so many residents attended the Hertsmere Planning Department’s new Local Plan’s Issue’s & Options Drop session at Shenley Primary School on 13th November last year. We hope that many have people have made their views known and that Hertsmere listens.
Shenley Neighbourhood Plan is making good progress. The Steering Group and four Working Parties (Housing & Development, Green Belt & Heritage, Amenities & Local Services and Roads, Transport & Parking) have had many meetings since the Launch on 5th April. A big thank you to all participants. Inevitably the holiday season had an effect regarding people’s availability which has meant that over the last 6 weeks it has been more difficult to get sufficient numbers for key meetings so a few have had to be cancelled. Now that most people have had their holidays I am hoping that momentum will increase again such that we will make more progress over the next few months.
I am delighted to report that the Shenley Neighbourhood Plan Launch Meeting held at Shenley Primary School on Wednesday 5th April from 6.30 until 9 pm was a great success. We were expecting 51 people to turn up but the Community was even more supportive than we anticipated – double the number came along! Thank you to everyone who joined us. Your support was much appreciated.
I hope that all who attended now know more about Neighbourhood Planning and what having a Shenley Neighbourhood Plan in place will mean for the Village.
