North Herts Council has received the Inspector’s Final Report on the Examination of the District’s Local Plan 2011-2031.

The Inspector's Report concludes that the plan is sound, legally compliant and capable of adoption, subject to minor modifications which can be viewed in the report.

The issuing of the report marks the end of the Examination of the Plan which was sent to the Government in June 2017.

The conclusions of the Inspector’s report means that the Local Plan can now go forward with a recommendation to adopt the Plan at a Full Council meeting. Details of the meeting will be announced in due course.

Cllr Ruth Brown, North Herts Council’s Executive member for Planning & Transport, said: “I am pleased that the Inspector has completed his examination of the District’s Local Plan and returned his report for local councillors to consider. Local Plans are a long and lengthy process and I would like to thank all of the local residents and groups who took part in the Examination and gave their views to the Inspector.”
