East Hertfordshire district council in the south east of England has launched a 38-point plan aimed at tackling air pollution in the district.
Officially launched on National Clean Air Day last Thursday (15 June) the document outlines progress towards existing objectives and new measures to improve air quality across the borough, which includes the towns of Hertford, Sawbridgeworth and Bishop’s Stortford.
More than 12,000 documents comprising the East Herts district plan have been taken to Bristol in the back of a car.
The plan, which includes proposals to build 16,000 new homes in the district in the next 15 years, was delivered to the Government on Friday (March 31).
An extraordinary meeting of East Hertfordshire District Council (EHDC) passed seven items on the proposed district plan to build 16,000 new homes unanimously without any debate.
Three district councils have united in support for a 10,000 home garden town to be built near Gilston.
In a joint statement, symbolic in the pending publication of respective local plans, Harlow, East Herts and Epping Forest councils backed the government’s locally led garden town fund.
A funding application, known as an “expression of interest”, relating to the Gilston Garden Town has been jointly submitted to central government by three councils.
East Herts Council has now published its “Draft District Plan Preferred Options” which will shortly go out to public consultation.
