Drop-in sessions at 96 Shenley Road to discuss development in Borehamwood

People can have their say over how their town will change over the next 15 years.

Hertsmere Borough Council is holding a public drop-in session at 96 Shenley Road, Borehamwood on Monday to discuss the council’s local plan, which will guide development in the area until 2027.

The plans, detailing where and how new homes will be built in the borough, the future face of the high street and the green belt boundary, are currently up for public consultation.

The drop-in session, which will run from 12pm until 8pm, will give townspeople the chance to discuss the plans with planning officers and make their views heard.

Cllr Harvey Cohen, who is in charge of planning and localism, said: “These are critical plans on which we want people to give us their views as they will have an impact on people and the communities they live in.

“We have responsibilities to provide adequate land for development, whether that is for retail or for new homes, but we also want to ensure our high streets are supported, that our communities are safe and pleasant places in which to live and work, that areas are protected and that all the needs of our diverse communities are met."

The consultation ends on April 14.
