December 2007


Local Development Framework
The Local Development Framework display was mounted in the village hall for 4 days from October 16th (as reported in my November article). In three days only 3 members of the public visited it so we did not open on the Friday.

The LDF consultation period has now closed but there is still time for Knebworth to have an impact on the contents of this document. Come to the Public Meeting in the Village Hall on Wednesday 5th December. After hearing various presentations you will have the opportunity to fill in a questionnaire relating to possible Green Belt development which might, perhaps, open the door to village enhancing development in the centre of Knebworth. A leaflet has been delivered to every household giving greater detail and explaining how to get hold of a questionnaire if you cannot get to this important meeting. The results from that questionnaire may then be included in the final LDF document.

Knebworth Conservation Areas
The Knebworth Conservation Areas consultation display was mounted in the village hall on 3rd November. Around 30 villagers attended. The display is now in the Library and will be there until 14th December. More questionnaires to fill in.

Stevenage and North Herts Action Plan
Yet another consultation has now been launched. The Stevenage and North Herts Action Plan (SNAP) consultation is running until late January. More about that in the January issue.

Recreation Ground
Work on the Watton Road Recreation Ground play areas is now completed and it all looks good.

Remembrance Day
The Remembrance Sunday service at the war memorial in Old Knebworth on 11th November was blessed with cold but dry weather. A huge crowd turned up to show their respects to those who died for their country. Rev Jim Pye led the service which was organised by the local British Legion. David Cox from Letchworth gave a most moving performance of Last Post and Reveille and John Bantick led the singing of the hymn. Thanks to all who came, to the residents of Jubilee Lodge East and West for permission to place the loudspeakers in their gardens and to Knebworth Village School for loan of the amplification equipment.

Christmas lights
At the time of writing this I am reliably informed that by the time you receive this issue the Christmas lights will be shining out in Station Road and London Road.

Good wishes
The whole of the Parish Council sends its good wishes to all the residents of the Parish of Knebworth for a very happy Christmas and a prosperous New Year.
