The consultation on plans which could double the population of London Colney is closing this Thursday.

Proposals were revealed earlier this year for the London Colney Garden Village, which would increase the number of homes in the village from 4,000 to 8,000.

Hertsmere Borough Council, which was accused of not discussing the draft Local Plan with London Colney residents, is winding up the public consultation this week.

Head of planning Christine Lyons said: “We’ve really been impressed with the level of participation and thoughtful consideration of the issues this consultation has generated.

“The new Local Plan will not only help decide where new homes will be, how many of them there will be, and what sort of homes they will be, but it could also help encourage more jobs locally and attract more businesses to the area, as well as determine what infrastructure is built to support that growth such as new schools, new community facilities, or new cycleways and footpaths.

“For many people the possibility of new developments in their local area can be hugely daunting and stressful. That’s why throughout this consultation, we have emphasised that we are at a very early point in the process.

“Nothing has been decided, no sites have been allocated - this is your opportunity to give your views and help shape the future of the borough.”

Another consultation on the next stage of the draft Local Plan will likely take place in 2018.

Recently we, as a family (minus two of the kids), visited The Lodge RSPB reserve in Sandy, Bedfordshire. I had never been before, which is perhaps amiss of me as a birdwatcher as it is the headquarters of the Royal Society for the Protection of Birds or RSPB and only 45 minutes drive from home.
