North Hertfordshire District Council
Local Plan 2031

North Herts has approved a Pre-submission Local Plan 2011- 2031.

Three sites have been included in the Pre-submission Local Plan for development in Knebworth to accommodate a minimum of 663 dwellings.

The document is to go out to consultation for six weeks commencing 19 October.

All comments will go to the Inspector who will assess the Plan for "Soundness".

The four tests of Soundness are:
- Positively prepared ( from "reasonable alternatives")
- Justified
- Effective
- Consistent with national policy (NPPF)

Only if the Plan is found to be sound can the document be fully adopted by NHDC.

The Parish Council urges everyone to respond to the consultation on the Pre-submission Local Plan.

Do respond on- line
Do be as specific as possible
Do encourage others to register their views
Don't express an opinion
Don't be late
