FINAL STEPS: Kings Langley Parish Council close to creating neighbourhood plan

 Published on: 27th August 2019   |   By: News Desk   |   Category: Uncategorized

Kings Langley Parish Council has applied to designate its parish area as a neighbourhood area. 

This is the first step towards creating a neighbourhood plan for the area.

The Neighbourhood Planning Regulations gives parish or town councils, and neighbourhood forums, the ability to apply for a neighbourhood area to be designated.

Having access to submit a neighbourhood plan allows residents to have a say on things going on in the area and give them the opportunity to shape the future of the village.

In a letter to Dacorum Borough Council, clerk to the parish, Paul Dunham said having a neighbourhood plan will allow the community to have a say on issues in the area.

It read: “A neighbourhood plan for Kings Langley Parish will allow the local community to have a direct say about the issues it faces, identified in a recent parish survey, which include housing and environmental sustainability/pressures on the Green Belt.

“The purpose of a neighbourhood plan will be to help ensure that development makes a positive and beneficial contribution to the wider community, is supported by it, and by improvements to local services and infrastructure.”

A consultation period stared on September 2 and will be open for six weeks, closing on October 18, 2019. 

Please note this will not be a consultation on the neighbourhood plan itself, but merely the identification of the area for which the parish council wish to prepare a neighbourhood plan.
