Neighbourhood Plan

Widford Icon 2

The Parish Council intend to hold a public meeting in November to outline 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. An external consultant will be invited to speak and make sure that the residents are fully aware of the advantages and disadvantages of the exercise. 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.

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.
