St Albans District Council's Draft Strategic Local Plan
St Albans District Council's draft Strategic Local Plan (SLP) was approved by District Councillors on 2nd December 2015 at their extraordinary full council meeting. The SLP includes 2500 new houses on Green Belt in Redbourn Ward - referred to as "East of Hemel". There is now a public consultation, until 19th February, for comment on whether the Plan is sound in legal and planning terms. You can find out more and respond on this matter as follows:
Online Portal: www.stalbans.gov.uk/slp Phone: 01727 866100
Write: St Albans Council Offices, St Peters Street, St Albans, AL1 3JE
Visit: St Albans Council Offices, St Peters Street, St Albans, AL1 3JE
Redbourn Parish Council will be challenging the draft SLP putting forward arguments that it is not sound and that Redbourn's Green Belt should not be used for extensive development.
Residents may respond individually and documents are available for viewing at Redbourn Parish Centre.
