The Chairman welcomed all those present.  He reminded Members of forthcoming events, in particular the diversity in East Herts event at the Rhodes Centre in Bishop’s Stortford on Sunday 15 September.  The Chairman said he was also planning a civic dinner on 23 November to which all Members were invited.  He had arranged for a lecture to be given at this event by David Olusoga, the well-known historian, so the evening promised to be extremely interesting. 


The Chairman said that, as part of his role, he had been asked for improvements to the facilities where Members collected their post, which had been implemented.

Standon Parish Neighbourhood Development Plan - Adoption pdf icon PDF 154 KB

Additional documents:


The Leader submitted a report on the Standon Neighbourhood Development Plan, following the Referendum of 25 July 2019.


She thanked Members for attending this extraordinary Council meeting which was necessary due to the tight timetable required by law for the outcome of the Referendum to be implemented.  The Standon Neighbourhood Development Plan was another example of the phenomenal work of the community.  The Neighbourhood Development Plan would come under the District Plan, so would align with the policies adopted by the Council.  Once approved, the Plan would become a material document in determining planning applications.  Councillor Haysey paid tribute to the organisers. 


Councillor L Haysey moved, and Councillor J Goodeve seconded, a motion that the recommendations now detailed be approved.  After being put to the meeting and a vote taken, the motion was declared CARRIED.  Council approved the recommendations, as now detailed. 


RESOLVED - that the Standon Parish Neighbourhood Development Plan, as detailed at Essential Reference Paper ‘B’ to the report, be formally ‘made’ and incorporated as part of the Development Plan.
