113/17                      Minutes of the Parish Council Meeting held on 2nd January 2018

RESOLVED that the minutes of the Ordinary Parish Council meeting, held on 2nd January 2018 be confirmed as a correct record, and signed by Cllr Susman and adopted by the Council.

 

114/17.                     Review of Action Plan from above meetings

The Action plan was NOTED.

 

115/17.         Questions by residents of Shenley Parish

The Chairman welcomed the residents present to the meeting and invited them to address the meeting.

 

Mr and Mrs Treacher together with Dr Ramani addressed the meeting regarding the sale by Hertfordshire County Councils of areas of common land. One such area in Well End has now been fenced off and cannot be accessed by members of the public which goes against common land. Dr Ramani emphasised his concerns regarding the length of time enforcement of common land will take.

 

Following a lengthy discussion County Councillor Morris Bright confirmed that he has been in touch with Mrs Treacher and is awaiting an answer for Hertfordshire County Council regarding the issue of common land.  The response will be received by 09/02/18.

 

The Parish Council AGREED to wait for County Councillor Bright’s response before they take action.

 

Mr and Mrs Midson addressed the meeting regarding speeding along Black Lion Hill, which is an ongoing issue.

 

Following a discussion it was AGREED that the Clerk would chase Hertfordshire Highways department concerning the smiling traffic sign and also request an additional sign for Black Lion Hill past the Tesco roundabout on the way down Black Lion Hill, as well as the traffic survey.  It was also requested that a BEWARE CONCEALED ENTRANCE sign be erected near the Midson’s home.  It was also suggested that there should be a double white line to prevent overtaking and that the speed of traffic be reduced to past Clore Shalom School to 30mph. County Councillor Bright emphasised that expectations need to be realistic in what can be achieved.  Perhaps there is a possibility to decrease the speed of traffic during school hours.

 

Finally residents of Ribston Close addressed the meeting concerning planning application 17/2444/HSE. The application increases the 4 bedroom property to a 6 bedroom property and the neighbours feel this is overpowering and will change the street scene.  The proposed plans include an increase of the garden which is parallel to the bridleway and the new suggested parking will adversely affect neighbours.

 

Councillor Spencer said he would call this in to the planning committee to be discussed.

 

It was at this point that County Councillor Morris Bright was asked questions concerning Hertsmere’s local plan.  Councillors Beaton and Gilligan stressed extreme concern about the housing numbers being proposed by Hertsmere Borough Council (HBC), as the Government figures are 3,720 and HBC are proposing around 9,000 homes.  Councillor Bright explained that a different methodology had been used to achieve the numbers due to the age of the Hertsmere Borough Council’s Core Strategy.  The number of houses will be confirmed in March.  Councillor Bright emphasised that HBC do not want to build 9,000 homes in Hertsmere.

 

Councillor Beaton asked about the suggestion that 1,000 will be built across Shenley and Elstree, with in fact most of these being built in Shenley.  Councillor Bright informed the meeting that 100 possible sites are being reviewed and no decisions have been made.

 

Councillor Beaton said how disappointed the representatives of the Parish Council had been when they attended a meeting with HBC following the Neighbourhood Plan letter that was sent the HBC, only to be told that no questions would be answered. Councillor Bright emphasised that regular contact is needed between all parties concerned.

 

Councillor Bright went on to stress several more points. 

Infrastructure is important when reviewing the possible site.

HBC public consultation has only just happened

The preferred site options will not be available till October 2018

The plans will be produced in 2019

The examination period will happen in 2020

The local plan will be adopted in 2021

 

Councillor Bright stressed that the release of the Green Belt will only happen if it is essential.  He is happy to provide regular updates for the Parish Council and is happy to be copied into correspondence and help where he can. The Chairman and those present thanked the County Councillor for his time.

 

The chairman thanked everyone for attending and invited them to say for the duration of the meeting if they wished.

 

116/17.         Reports of Committee, Members and Clerk

(i)                Question from resident regarding extending the Christmas Lights
