Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on Linkedin Email this link

Over the coming months the Councils want to work with the people of South West Hertfordshire to create a vision for the area. This will help develop the Joint Strategic Plan (JSP) and set priorities. There will be plenty of opportunities for residents to get involved in this process. Please use the following engagement tools to leave your ideas and comments: creating a future scenario and ideas for change.

The process to develop the vision will adopt a fresh and innovative approach that challenges current thinking, considers future societal, lifestyle and technical changes, takes into account South West Hertfordshire's unique features, and engages a wide group of stakeholders including residents, businesses and youth.


JSP Vision Objectives


Get involved: Exploring Future Potential

We want your input as we seek to develop ambitious yet realistic viewpoints on the type of future we might want for South West Hertfordshire. Key to the success of the vision and also the Joint Strategic Plan will be your help. We believe we can only move forward by working together - young people, residents, businesses and other stakeholders in partnership to develop this shared long term vision. The material and activities on this page will help you support us in anticipating the future and encourage you to provide tangible ideas for change and action that might best control and guide the outcomes we want to see.

We hope you share our view of the importance of this work and want to get involved in this exciting opportunity with us. An opportunity to influence and inform how and where we address climate change, provide the right infrastructure at the right time, look at where good growth should be located, grow and support local businesses, educate our young people, develop our future workforce and support our changing communities, ensuring all residents have the chance to benefit from future opportunities.


Time to think differently: Futurologist viewpoints

Hear from some inspiring thinkers as we challenge ourselves to broaden our perspectives, ambitions and potential.
