Latest... We're setting out our stall at the Big Event in Ware on the 7th of November...  hope to see you there...

A Neighbourhood Plan is  written by the local community. That means the people who know and love the area can decide on the type of development they want in the places they want it...

Page still under construction. We're hoping to develop this section of the site as a photo gallery - focusing not (just) on the beautifully crafted images you see on local Facebook groups like "Photos of Hertford and Ware" but on pictures that illustrate the sorts of things that our Neighbourhood Plan might want to legislate against... or preserve. 

 

Day by day, you must see lots of things in town that give you pause for thought. Why not take a picture when you do? Or maybe you already have lots of images like this on your phone.

Either way, we'd love to see them. As the old cliche has it, a picture paints a thousand words - but it's absolutely true. This might be the most powerful way to get your point across.

You could post them to our Facebook page or our Twitter feed.

 

Or you could even email us directly: info@waretowncouncil.gov.uk
