Local Plan for New Houses

Hertsmere Borough Council have now released their Local Plan for new housing all over the Borough. The plans for South Mimms are shown here: Village residents will be receiving a feedback form through their doors. The full plan can be seen on www.hertsmerelocalplan.com and feedback can also be given online.

The number of homes to be built in South Mimms has been reduced from those first proposed because of plans to build a new town called Bowmans Cross.

This will be on the old mining site next to the M25 and surrounding parts of the Tyttenhanger Estate as you approach London Colney. The developers of the site will be at the 4th November Parish Council Meeting at the Village hall at the usual 7.30pm to explain their approach and outline the plans for building new schools and facilities .
