Following our ‘Issues and Options’ consultation in  2014, the details of the draft Neighbourhood Plan went into production.  This, as the next stage to consult the community and will start in September 2016. Once your comments have been reviewed, we will submit our final plan to Dacorum Borough Council to check for conformity before they arrange for an independent examination, and subject to examination approval we will take the final plan to referendum later in 2017.

This will be your chance to support the Neighbourhood Plan and help make it a recognised document within the planning decision process and help potential developers understand the needs and wishes of the community to make Grovehill a more welcoming, vibrant and busy place to live.
