Knebworth Parish Plan Update


 Knebworth Parish Plan

Our thanks to the 600 residents who have taken the time and trouble to complete the Parish Survey. We are still busy entering the statistics and thousands of comments and suggestions which you have made. We hope to publish the results more fully next month. The statistics reveal some interesting views with split opinions on:

  • Affordable housing

  • Provision for a secondary school 

  • Improvements to the Surgery 

  • The need and disadvantages of a bypass. 

A majority appear to be in favour of relocating Lowe's yard but are anxious to retain the considerable asset of their business in the parish if at all possible.

Traffic congestion is a universal cause for concern with many constructive suggestions to overcome this major problem. These suggestions inevitably include demands for improved car parking provision both around the station and in the High Street.

The protection of the greenbelt and our rural environment is high on most peoples agendas and on their list of reasons for living in Knebworth.

Thank you to everyone who has offered to help with the next stage of the plan. We will be holding an open meeting in February to set up 'focus groups' to examine the range of these complex issues. We are hoping that more volunteers will come forward to be included in the work of these groups (contact 01438 233 919)

Please look out for further news in the February issue of the Parish Magazine and in the local press. 

With our wishes for a Very Happy New Year.
