The Three Rivers Local Plan is now out for consultation. This is the first formal consultation on the plan (known as a Regulation 18 Consultation) and, though there are later consultations on the plan, this is the best chance for the public to effect change in the plan. This consultation will run until 20th August.

The Local Plan consists of policies that will govern decisions over planning permissions for the next 15 years and a list of proposed larger sites for development over that period. Details of the policies and sites can be found at:

www.threerivers.gov.uk/egcl‐page/new‐local‐plan

Further detail on the sites can be found at:

Whatever your feelings about this plan we strongly recommend that you make your views known to the council – this is your best opportunity to influence what will happen in our district over the next 15+ years.
