Response

The Council has agreed to resettle up to 50 individuals in East Herts over the lifetime of this parliament (approximately 10 individuals per year).  This was a decision made at a Hertfordshire Chief Executives meeting in October attended by the Chief Executive and by the Leader of the Council.  We hold no minutes from those meetings.  The council has written to the East of England Local Government Association to confirm the Council's intention. (see document in downloads section below).
