    North Hertfordshire Local Plan and St Ippolyts Neighbourhood Plan


    North Hertfordshire District Council (NHDC) is in the process of formulating a Local Plan for your district. This Plan will set out where new homes and places of employment should be built over the next 15 years. The North Hertfordshire Local Plan process should be completed soon.

    This is your chance to secure the future you want for St Ippolyts


    Some sites allocated for new housing development, like Pound Fields at Hitchin, form an integral part of the emerging Local Plan. Osprey Homes has made the decision to start consultation at the earliest opportunity with local neighbours in Hitchin and St Ippolyts.


    This is to ensure that we have the opportunity to listen to what residents have to say and shape the designs for the site in such away that makes a positive contribution to the local area.


    At the time of your Neighbourhood Plan consultation your Parish Council said: Unless we create a Neighbourhood Plan we have no way of influencing what they look like, the types of housing, or the things we all take for granted such as school places, traffic speed, road lighting etc.


    Therefore, we as a developer sincerely hope that you will take this opportunity to look at our plans and give us feedback and vote on the traffic calming options for London Road.
