Abbots Langley Neighbourhood Plan

In May 2014 the Parish Council decided to embark on the process to develop a Neighbourhood Plan, under Part 2 of the Neighbourhood Planning (General) Regulations 2012. The Parish Council decided the designated area for the plan should be the whole of the civil parish. Following public consultation in 2014, Three Rivers District Council, as the local Planning Authority, approved this choice of area. See map right (click to enlarge).

The topics to be included in the Neighbourhood Plan have to be generated by the residents, employees and businesses based in the parish. So each member of the community is encouraged have a say on the issues that are important to them. Thoughts and ideas are requested about how to shape the future of the civil parish of Abbots Langley.

In early 2016 the Parish Council appointed a twelve-person team of local residents and Parish Councillors to coordinate the work programme. This Team will keep the community informed as the plan develops. Before the plan can be accepted, there will be a local referendum for which majority approval is required. If accepted, the Neighbourhood Plan becomes part of the local planning policy to guide future land development and conservation within the parish.
