Update on the Parish Council's appeal to the Information Commissioner's Office.
You might recall that the Parish Council appealed to the Information Commissioner's Office (ICO) about the limited information provided to us by North Herts District Council (NHDC) in relation to the communications between NHDC and the proposed developers of site LS1, near Ramerick Manor. The ICO reviewed the correspondence between the Parish Council and NHDC on this subject, and felt that there might be a case for NHDC to answer. Consequently, NHDC has reviewed its responses to our request for information, and have found that they misinterpreted our request, and therefore their response was not fully sound. However, narrowing the search for correspondence to those NHDC officers and councillors who might reasonably have been in discussions with the developers did not yield any further written communication. Additionally, NHDC feel that to search through their computer systems for any documents relating to our request which might exist would be unduly time consuming.

Ickleford & Lower Stondon session of the
Examination in Public,
We would like to thank the many residents that attended the Hearing session on Tuesday 27 February to demonstrate the strength of feeling about the sites included in the Local Plan for our village. We now await the Inspector’s Report, which we understand may be some months away. Whilst we cannot predict  the outcome of the Inspector’s deliberations, please be assured that your Parish Council presented a strong case to the Inspector to challenge the Local Plan proposals for Ickleford.

Submission for the Examination in Public
- NHDC Draft Local Plan
At the Ickleford Parish Council meeting on 4 January, our submission and supporting appendices for the Ickleford and Lower Stondon session of the Examination in Public (EiP) were reviewed and approved. These have been sent to the Inspector.

Your Parish Council believes that there are significant flaws in the NHDC Local Plan as it relates to our village and its immediate surroundings. The submission builds on the issues raised in our response to the initial consultation, bringing to the Inspector’s attention related, additional material. This is supported by detailed, associated data in the appendices. Our submission also lists carefully considered requests to make the Plan sound. Further information about the Examination, including supporting documents, can be found on the NHDC website.

Proposed Submission Local Plan
The Government has appointed a Planning Inspector to oversee an Examination in Public which started in November 2017.
