North Herts Local Plan - Adopted

The Council voted to adopt the North Hertfordshire Local Plan 2011 – 2031 at a meeting on November 8th 2022.

The North Hertfordshire Local Plan was submitted to the Planning Inspectorate for Examination in June 2017 and was the subject of an independent examination conducted by Simon Berkeley BA MA MRTPI. The Inspector's Report was published on 8 September 2022, which confirmed that the Plan was sound, subject to a number of main modifications, and recommended its adoption. The recommended main modifications, along with additional minor modifications, now form part of the adopted North Hertfordshire Local Plan.

In accordance with Regulations 26 and 35 of the 2012 Regulations, the following documents have been made available and are available to view on our website:

(i) The North Hertfordshire Local Plan 2011-2031

(ii) The Adoption Statement

(iii) The Sustainability Appraisal Report

These documents are also available for inspection (free of charge) by appointment at the following location:

  • Council Offices, Gernon Road, Letchworth Garden City, SG6 3JF

Any person aggrieved by the North Hertfordshire Local Plan 2011 – 2031 may make an application to the High Court under Section 113(3) of the Planning and Compulsory Purchase Act 2004 on the grounds that:

(i) the document is not within the power (as defined in section 113(9) of the Planning and Compulsory Purchase Act 2004); or

(ii) a procedural requirement has not been complied with.

Any such application must be made promptly and, in any event, not later than the end of the period of six weeks beginning with the day after the North Hertfordshire Local Plan was adopted (i.e. six weeks beginning on 9 November 2022).
