Our Gilston Area Neighbourhood Plan received a massive endorsement from local residents on 27th May with a powerful 98% of the vote, in a very high turnout at the referendum on it.
We would like to thank you all for your incredible support over these last two years, and for coming out to vote for the policies in the Plan.
This overwhelming vote gives you a voice to shape and influence the development of the Garden Villages, which we know are destined for this area and imposed by others against the will of the majority of the people who live here.
So what happens next?
Your Neighbourhood Plan Group will fight to see that the promises made by East Herts Council and the Developers are delivered.
There will be many years of planning and building to monitor but with the support of the community as now expressed, the planners and developers have to take notice of present and future residents.
As a sign of the quality of your Neighborhood Plan, it has been shortlisted for the Best Plan Making 2021 in the National Planning Awards – we’ll let you know how it gets on.
Thank you once more.
– Hunsdon, Eastwick and Gilston Neighbourhood Plan Group
