18482. TO REVIEW THE COUNCIL’S REPRESENTATION AT THE LA5

PUBLIC EXAMINATION

The public examination the Dacorum’s Site Allocation and associated Master Plans finished at the end of last week.

There were two sessions directly related to LA5:

 The Gypsy & Traveller needs assessment (Matter 3)  The LA5 Master Plan (Matter 11) A third session (Matter 2 General Matters) had possible implications for LA5 – where CPRE argued against bringing forward any of the Master Plans until there was clarity on the needs for houses and Gypsy & Traveller pitches. This would mean any changes to the greenbelt would be kept to the latest possible time.

Tring Town Council, West Hemel Action Group, and Cala argued that:

 The exceptional circumstances to change the greenbelt had not been demonstrated  The resulting greenbelt boundary was not clearly defined  There was no objectively assessed need  The allocation of sites was not based on robust or proportionate evidence Tring Town Council, CPRE, and the Chiltern Conservation Board argued that the Gypsy & Traveller site was incompatible with the A.O.N.B.

Cala having initially stated that they would not put forward an application if the Gypsy & Traveller site was included, withdrew their statement. They also debated the delivery mechanism with regard to the management of any Gypsy & Traveller site.

–  –  –

adopted before LA5 was started/completed, what would be the implications?

 The mechanism to manage the Gypsy & Traveller site once Cala had completed their obligations was vague (It would be a privately managed site) Cllr Hicks reported the discussion of L4 Playing Fields at Dunsley. He was concerned that now Tring School was an academy, it did not have to automatically increase its intake to accommodate a growing demand for places e.g. from LA5.

18483. TO REVIEW THE COUNCIL’S CHURCH SQUARE AND MARKET

SQUARE HIRING POLICY

The existing policies were circulated prior to the meeting. The Clerk explained that this issue was referred to the Council by the Building & Assets Committee meeting held on 3rd October as a result of an application to use Church Square.

Historically the policy has been that Church Square was only let for charitable or public information purposes (e.g. the bus company). The accepted rationale behind the policy was that this was because of a covenant on the property.

However during the switch of the markets to Church Square the Rothschild covenant was shown to relate to keeping the area open. Having retrieved the archive on Church Square from the solicitors, Mr Tim Amsden, Chairman of the Tring & District Local History & Museum Society reviewed all the documents and could not find evidence of any other restrictions.

This raised the possibility of commercial lets, which as well as a source of revenue, could give vibrancy to the town centre. However this could be considered out of keeping with the setting. Any change to the current definition would mean a new defensible definition having to be determined. The Council was therefore asked by the Building & Assets Committee to review the letting policy.

–  –  –

The Clerk was asked to develop a draft policy for consideration.

18484. TO RECEIVE HERTFORDSHIRE COUNTY COUNCIL HIGHWAYS’ SERVICE GUIDE AUGUST 2016 The guide was circulated prior to the meeting. Cllr Townsend expressed disappointment that there was no recognition of the role Town and Parish Councils could play in reporting and prioritising work through better links with the County Council.

–  –  –

He explained that the basis of the contract with Ringway, gave them control on prioritising work. It was contracted on this basis to save money. He stressed the financial pressures on the Highways budget.

–  –  –

18485. TO RECEIVE HERTFORDSHIRE COUNTY COUNCIL’S NEW

LOCAL TRANSPORT PLAN CONSULTATION

The consultation papers were circulated prior to the meeting. Whilst there was no investment that directly affected Tring, Cllr Hollinghurst stressed that the Council should respond to the consultation because the period to be covered by the plan was one where there needed to be fundamental changes to the way people travelled. One could not expect to use a single means of transport for the entire journey, but could use a more efficient mix of methods.
