The Gilston Area Neighbourhood Plan Referendum
We urge all residents of Hunsdon to VOTE YES by voting at their Village Halls in person on May 27, or using a postal vote.
This IS NOT a vote about whether you agree the housing development across the Gilston Area should be allowed. Residents sadly lost that fight back in 2018 when the Inspector at the Examination in Public agreed the East Herts District Plan could go ahead.
It IS a vote about whether East Herts Council and the developers must take account of the Policies within the Gilston Neighbourhood Plan, written in conjunction with residents of Hunsdon, Eastwick and Gilston over the last two years.
A Vote “YES” gives local people a voice. Once it passes, the Plan becomes a Policy Document and planners and developers have to listen and deliver on their promises of seven Garden Villages with housing of exceptional quality, and 1,000 acres of community owned open spaces. It gives local people a voice.
It’s critical that after two years work on the Gilston Area Neighbourhood Plan we get it over the final hurdle and not leave it all to the planners and developers to do whatever they want in our Neighbourhood.
