Have a Voice - A Professional One

The presentation on the Town Plan by Jed Griffiths, MA DipTP FRTPLI, at Manor House was an outstanding success and more than fulfilled the Civic Society's objective of meeting the Town Council's request for feed-back on the recently published Town Plan.

Attendees included Mayor Stan Bull, Cllr.John Warren, Jill Jones Town Clerk, representatives of BARD, BCS Executive Committee and numerous townsfolk with an interest in the future of Buntingford.

There are three recommendations in the paper which are shown below. The situation is that at this stage a Neighbourhood Plan is not the first choice but the third recommendation is one that should be promptly taken-up to have agreed strategy and objectives against which to appraise EHC plan for Buntingford and the lead on this must come from Manor House and our elected representatives.

Recommendation 1. That the Town Council, together with the Civic Society and other local organisations, should debate whether or not a formal Neighbourhood Plan is appropriate for Buntingford.

Recommendation 2. That, should the decision be made to proceed with a Neighbourhood Plan, the Town Council should discuss with other organisations and neighbouring parishes the extent of the area to be designated.

Recommendation 3. That, in the immediate future, the Town Council, together with the Civic Society and other local organisations,should scrutinise the emerging policies and proposals in the East Herts District and to formulate a clear view on an appropriate strategy for the future planning of Buntingford.

The slides from the presentation can be found here and the full presentation is available here.
