Open Day 2 March 2019

Below are some of the documents which were available at the Knebworth Neighbourhood Plan Open Day held on 2 March 2019.

What is a Neighbourhood Plan?

Neighbourhood planning gives communities direct power to develop a shared vision for their neighbourhood and shape the development and growth of their local area. They are able to choose where they want new homes, shops and offices to be built, have their say on what those new buildings should look like and what infrastructure should be provided. Neighbourhood planning provides a powerful set of tools for local people to ensure that they get the right types of development for their community where the ambition of the neighbourhood is aligned with the strategic needs and priorities of the wider local area.

The first stage of the process is to collect your ideas, through a questionnaire, about what is important in the village, what you like about the village and what issues there are.

Please respond by 30 January 2017.

Housing Needs & Parking Survey

The Knebworth Neighbourhood Plan Housing Needs Survey will be arriving through your letterbox in the next couple of days. The form will be hand delivered by volunteers to all households in Knebworth.

This Housing Needs Survey is an extremely important part of the Neighbourhood Planning process and will only take FIVE MINUTES to complete. It relates to the current and future housing needs of the community and it seeks to:

> Identify the size and type of homes needed in Knebworth

> Help to identify the level of parking required with development

In other words it will allow the residents of Knebworth to have their say about future development.

Once completed there are two ways to return your form:

1. Complete the form and email it to
2. Take your form to one of the collection boxes located at Knebworth Library, Village News, Knebworth Surgery or Knebworth Village Hall post box. .

The MORE completed surveys we get back, the MORE representative our plan will be.
