Elstree Way Corridor meeting tomorrow
Controversial plans to redevelop the Elstree Way Corridor will be discussed at a meeting tomorrow.
People will meet at the Civic Offices, in Elstree Way, to hear about the master plan for the area, from 5.30pm.
The council’s action plan includes creating 800 new homes - but many fear this will bring the village to a “standstill”.
Isopad House is the latest building to be given the go-ahead under the regeneration scheme, a new12 storey block of flats which will provide 150 new homes.
But thousands did not hear about the plans until after they had been granted approval, and argued the consultation had been badly publicized.
As a result, during tomorrow's meeting people will also be able to voice concerns about the way they are consulted during the planning process.
The meeting was triggered after a petition by resident Andrew Lewis opposing Isopad house gained more than 750 signatures.
He said: ““It’s made the council open its eyes to the wishes of the people in Borehamwood. “The petition shows the people of Borehamwood will sit up and take notice of the way their town is changing.
“I want as many people as possible to come to the meeting and I want them to be reasonable, not become angry and listen to the points raised.”
The first meeting will take place from 5.30pm to 7pm and the second from 8pm to 9.30pm.
The meetings will also be webcast live. Those wishing to attend should register by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org or calling 020 8207 7527.
