Dacorum have published the new Local Plan for the Borough for consultation which sets out significant growth and investment over the coming decades, particularly in housing and employment. If you want to read the full (359 pages … + extensive appendices!) report you can find it at http://www.dacorum.gov.uk/localplan, or there’s a more accessible “virtual” exhibition at https://dacorumlocalplan.consultation.ai/. Everyone is encouraged to comment on the plan either direct to Dacorum at https://consult.dacorum.gov.uk/kse/event/35755 or by inputting your views to the Parish Council. The deadline for comments is 7th February 2021. It sounds dry, and in large part it is, but it will fundamentally shape the community we live in and so deserves your attention. Enjoy!
