It 2019 Hertford Town Council and Bengeo Neighbourhood Plan steering committee published the pre-submission draft of the Bengeo Neighbourhood Area Plan.
The planning process started in 2017 after it was agreed that designated area of the plan would be Bengeo District Ward. The designation was confined at East Herts Council Executive Committee on 27 June 2017. Hertford Town Council then started the process of developing a Neighbourhood Plan.
Discussions and consultations took place with residents, land owners, developers, businesses, organisations, and working groups researched and formulated policy areas for the plan. Some of the working groups focus on:
- Homes & Development
- Natural Environment & Green Spaces
- Culture & Community
- Transport & Traffic
