Public Meeting, 8pm 6th Dec - Where Should Our New Secondary School Be?

posted 24 Nov 2010, 12:03 by Unknown user   [ updated 2 Dec 2010, 09:55 by Unknown user ]
We've received the following letter from Carolyn Venn from the WD3 School Action Group inviting residents to a public meeting on the 6th December at 8pm. We would encourage all residents to take the time review the options for a new secondary school in the South-West Herts area. However you should note that the options for choosing a site for a new school are only a part of a larger consultation exercise about other planning and development matters - but you do not need to have a view on all these other matters to respond to the consultation.

You can find out more about the WD3 school action group at their online blog -

Dear All,
As local residents, I wanted to formally invite you to the public meeting re potential school sites on Monday 6th December, 8pm at St Peter's School.
Officers from Herts County Council and Three Rivers District Council have been invited to attend to present the reasoning behind the 5 suggested sites and answer questions.  I am sure you are keen to know why some sites have been dismissed and others chosen.  We will be urging all local residents to respond to the Local Development Framework found on TRDC's website....

I hope you can make it, but if not, please fill in TRDC's questionnaire in response to the consultation.  We need to demonstrate as much local support as possible for the school for both the planning and funding applications. Word Site Allocations Issues.doc

This is the start of a long battle to secure a much needed school for the WD3 area.  Please spread the word to all local residents, regardless of whether they have school-age children, and come along to show Herts County Council why we want a new community school more than anywhere else in Hertfordshire.
Thank you for your support.
Carolyn Venn
Vice-Chair, WD3 School Action Group
