From 16 June 2011 - 29 July 2011 the independent Local Government Boundary Commission for England (LGBCE) consulted local residents on plans to re-draw a council boundary that currently divides neighbours in Franklin Close, Colney Heath.
A map of the area is available on page three of the above report.
Consultation closed on 29 July 2011
Below are the submissions we received:
Parish and Town Councils
At present, part of Franklin Close is represented by Welwyn Hatfield Borough Council and part is represented by St Albans City & District Council. The boundary currently cuts through gardens and divides the community.
The Commission is recommending that the boundary between Welwyn Hatfield Borough Council and St Albans City and District Council should be moved so that numbers 2-18 Franklin Close (even numbers only) move from Welwyn Hatfield into St Albans. The Commission’s proposal also means that some gardens in Roestock Gardens and Franklin Close will also become part of St Albans. The houses attached to 9-13 Roestock Gardens and 20,22 and 24 are already located in St Albans.
