The Borough Council has commenced the period of public consultation for the Final Draft of the Local Plan. This started on Tuesday 30th August and ends on Monday 24th October at 5 p.m.
The Welwyn Hatfield Borough Council (WHBC) have produced Newsletter No. 11 which contains details of the dates and venues of their drop-in consultation events, and you are encouraged to note these dates and to attend, in order to get a fuller understanding of the Local Plan.
This consultation process is your final opportunity to make representations before the Local Plan is submitted for independent examination by the Government’s appointed Planning inspector.
But it is important to read the advice given in Newsletter No.11 regarding the basis upon which representations may be made, and to be clear that these representations will be made public. It is the Planning Inspector, and not the WHBC Planning Department who will consider representations at this stage.
