Three Rivers Local Plan: Potential Sites Consultation Document

Three Rivers District Council is preparing a new Local Plan that will set out a vision and framework for the future levels of growth within the District for the next 15 years until 2036. The Potential Sites Document contains sites that were put forward for consideration in the previous Local Plan process and were not allocated for development and those put forward by landowners, agents and developers as part of the Call for Sites consultations undertaken in 2017 and 2018.

The Potential Sites Consultation is an additional non-statutory consultation, providing the opportunity for stakeholders to comment on potential sites which will feed into the Strategic Housing and Employment Land Availability Assessment (SHELAA) process. The SHELAA is an assessment which identifies sites and broad locations with potential for development. It assesses their development potential, suitability for development and the likelihood of development coming forward. It is important to note that at this stage no decisions have yet been made on specific sites.

The Potential Sites Consultation Document and accompanying Sustainability Appraisal Working Note can be viewed on the Council’s website at: www.threerivers.gov.uk/egcl-page/new-local-plan. Hard copies can also be viewed in the Council’s offices in Rickmansworth (address below), the public libraries located within the District (Abbots Langley, Chorleywood, Croxley Green, Oxhey and Rickmansworth) and at the Parish/Town Councils’ offices.

Addresses and opening times of the libraries are listed on the Hertfordshire County Council website at:

English Longhorn Cattle

On 8th October the 4 longhorn cattle left the Common after having a very successful 6 weeks of grazing down in the Maybushes. As you will be able to see, they have had a big impact on the scrub levels and hopefully, come the spring, their efforts will be realised by an increase in wildflower species. We look forward to their return in 2019.
