Wheathampstead Village Plan (2009)
The Wheathampstead Village Plan was developed in 2009 and since then there have been three updates. The aims of the Plan were to set out the priorities for what needs to be done in Wheathampstead, and to lobby local and central government for changes to our facilities and services. Many of the items raised by residents have been addressed since its publication and these are itemised in the updates. Starting in 2015 the parish council will develop a Neighbourhood Plan encompasing ideas developed in the Village Plan and including extensive additional consultation with residents.
The Plan lists the main local issues and identifies appropriate ways of addressing them. Most of the information that we have used in recognising the main local issues comes from the answers that residents provided to the Village Plan Questionnaire issued in 2008; where other sources clearly demonstrated evidence of villagers’ wishes, these were also taken into account.
