Local Plan 2011-31

North Hertfordshire District Council's local plan covers the period 2011-2031 and will set targets for new homes, employment and retail development. It will identify areas of land where these developments should be built and consider what infrastructure is needed to support development. The Local Plan's policies will be used for making decisions on planning applications.


In pursuing our main objectives, the Baldock Society Committee is monitoring events associated with the Local Plan. You can find details of the our latest updates below.
