North Hertfordshire District Council’s draft Local Plan contains a section (‘Matter 10’) of proposals specifically about the future of Letchworth Garden City through to 2031, especially about housing and the sites, infrastructure etc that will be needed to deliver it. In the timetable of the Examination in Public, this matter is scheduled for all of the morning and some of the afternoon for the hearing at which the Inspector will gather evidence from interested parties who have previously made representations that are relevant to Matter 10and the Issues that he has selected for discussion.
P.S. The discussions were thorough, taking up all of the morning just for the proposed, strategic site identified as LG1 (north of the Grange Estate). The other proposed sites in Letchworth took up most of the afternoon, leaving some time for considering the allocated sites in Royston. The submissions and other relevant documents will be available on the Examination’s web site shortly, including a listing of items that the Inspector has asked NHDC, and NHDC have agreed, to provide.
