With recent proposals for new housing in Letchworth, TTL undertook a project to review previous housing developments and to consider the features we would like to see in new developments (both small and large). TTL final report has been shared with the heritage foundation and councillors. We hope to influence design briefs and design principles to ensure housing promotes low energy living and vibrant communities.
Development of a Neighbourhood Plan is one way in which local residents can influence what happens on land in the town. Once a plan is adopted by a referendum of the town’s residents it must be adhered to in planning decisions. TTL have been researching and sharing knowledge on the steps that would be involved in producing a Neighbourhood Plan for Letchworth. A Neighbourhood Forum would need to be formed to produce a Neighbourhood Plan which contains representatives of the town. We are keen to hear from and work with any individuals or groups that also think a Neighbourhood Plan may be beneficial for the town.
