Dacorum’s Local Plan

Dacorum Borough Council has published its draft Local Plan for consultation.

The Parish Council has significant concerns with the proposals which include the potential for significantly more traffic coming through Potten End and building on significant quantities of Green Belt land. The Parish Council will object strongly to the proposed Plan and ask Dacorum to reconsider.

Anyone is able to input to the consultation and we encourage you to do so. The deadline for comments is 28th February 2021.

Further information can be found here.

Dacorum Local Plan

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!
