Public Meeting – Neighbourhood Plan
The Parish Council will be hosting a Public Meeting on 12th January 2017 to discuss the case for producing a Neighbourhood Plan for Widford. The main purpose of the meeting will be to establish the level of support for this project. Two external speakers will be there to answer our questions and fill in the gaps. Information will include both the costs and likely timescales. Should the village want to go ahead a steering group would be formed to begin the task. Information on the process of producing a Neighbourhood Plan can be found on this site under Planning.
As you may know a Gigaclear employee suffered a fatal accident during the summer while working in Hunsdon. Our thoughts are with his family and friends at this sad time.
Two additional Dog Waste Bins
Widford can now boast three Dog Waste Bins. One is located at the start of the footpath next to the House of Orange. This has been well used and is definitely very successful so the Parish Council have invested in another two. There is now one on the village green and a third by the entrance to the playing field. These bins will be emptied and kept clean by East Herts on a regular basis.
