September 2016 – Consultation on the Draft Grovehill Future Neighbourhood Plan – Consultation now closed
13th March 2017 – Submission of the Grovehill Future Neighbourhood Plan
If there is a majority YES vote at the referendum, the plan will become part of the Local Development Plan for the area, which means it will sit alongside the Dacorum Borough Council’s Core Strategy and Save Local Plans and any proposals for development will have to conform to it.
Although the Plan does not become a statutory document until approved at referendum, at present Grovhill Future Forum are consulted on matters of major developments i.e. Site Allocation – LA1 Marchmont Farm. And once the Neighbourhood Plan is made, all planning applications in Grovehill will be reviewed by the Council with reference the policies made within our Neighbourhood Plan.
Details of Grovehill Future Neighbourhood Plan and relevant documents that form part of the submission documents, additional background documents can be found on the reference and evidence page.
