Whilst Little Hadham is a category 2 village in the East Herts District Plan and does not need to find any housing sites, preferences for a very small number of housing plots may be written into the Neighbourhood Plan to safeguard important areas of the village. East Herts Council’s proposed District Plan is currently being inspected by an independent Examiner appointed by the Secretary of State under the National Planning Policy Framework and your Neighbourhood Plan will come under scrutiny when it is completed. There will be a referendum and you, the village, will be able to have your say before it goes before the Examiner.

After the call for sites, our Chairman, Cllr. Will Wright has now sent these to an independent company for analysis and he will be receiving their report shortly.

The Neighbourhood Plan is progressing slowly but we have almost finished the Character Assessments for the village and the photographs for these now need to be chosen from the ones taken by the Steering Group throughout the summer. These will be inserted into the text to enhance and identify special properties, views and village assets.


Council transparency

The  Local Government Transparency Code requires local Councils to publish certain information.  Links to the Little Hadham Parish Council documents can be found on this page.
