Help shape the future of Rickmansworth, Moor Park and Eastbury

Press ReleaseUpdated: 6 June 2023Planning
Rickmansworth High Street

Residents are being invited to have their say on the future of development in Rickmansworth, Moor Park and Eastbury.

The Batchworth Community Council (BCC) Neighbourhood Plan – a document that sets out planning policies for the neighbourhood area – is now open for public consultation, and the community council would like to hear views on the plan.

A series of exhibitions are on display at Sandy Lodge Golf Club and St Mary’s School this June, at which members of the steering group will be present to answer questions, followed by a static exhibition at Three Rivers House, Rickmansworth, for four weeks, and an online digital exhibition and questionnaire.

Neighbourhood planning is a way for communities to have a say in the future of the places where they live and work. Local plans help people choose where they want new homes, shops and offices to be built and have a say on what those new buildings should look like.

Over the past three years, a resident led Steering Group set up by Batchworth Community Council has been developing the Neighbourhood Plan which incorporates the feedback and comments received from residents through focus groups, online tools and a survey.

All comments should be submitted by 21 July. Find out more at
