WHAT THE VILLAGE PLAN IS FOR
This Plan is the culmination of the work done by Wheathampstead Parish Council and others over the past year to recognise the main interests and concerns that we have as parishioners, and to identify opportunities for promoting those interests and tackling the concerns.
The aims of the Plan are 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.
We will not be operating in isolation. St Albans District Council has implemented a Sustainable Community Strategy that seeks to improve the quality of life for everyone who lives, learns or works in the District, or who visits the area. We share those priorities. We want to ensure that Wheathampstead remains a healthy, active community which takes a pride in itself and in its future. We want to make sure it is a great place to be.
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.
