Neighborhood Plan accepted by East Herts Council – Referendum set for May 27

After a rigorous Examination process, East Herts Council has accepted the Gilston Area Neighbourhood Plan.

It will be set down for approval in a public vote of residents of Eastwick, Gilston and Hunsdon parishes on Thursday, May 27, 2021.

We’ll have more details on the referendum in the near future.

While it cannot alter the council’s decision to allocate 10,000 houses in our area, the Neighbourhood Plan shapes and influences how this can best be done and gives a voice to both existing and new residents as the process moves forward.
