Letter To All Residents

20/03/2020

Dear South Mimms Resident,

As you may already be aware, Hertsmere Borough Council is preparing a new Local Plan which will include the long-term plan for growth across the Borough, including housing and infrastructure.

With that in mind, the Parish Council have been working with Hertsmere planning officers to look at local options for development, which would best suit the needs of the village over the next fifteen years.

We were due to hold a public engagement event on Friday 3rd April 2020, but due to the Coronavirus outbreak, all non-essential public meetings have been postponed until further notice.  This includes our monthly Parish Council public meeting on the first Thursday of the month.

In the interim period, SMPC will continue to liaise with Hertsmere planning officers to explore options for South Mimms and more information on these approaches will be provided in due course.

Clearly this is not an appropriate time for a public engagement event on the future of our village, but please be assured your opinion matters and we will be looking to re-arrange the event for a suitable time in the future.   The exact specifics of how this event will run are yet to be established but we look forward to sharing details with you as soon as we are able to.

Wishing you all good health,
