A public consultation on St Albans City & District Council (SADC)’s new draft Local Plan has been launched, with residents invited to share their opinions on it.
Opening up on July 12, and closing at 5pm on September 25, the feedback submitted to the consultation will be thoroughly analysed and then be used to shape any future changes.
The Local Plan draft is to provide a blueprint for future developments in the city and surrounding areas up until 2041. If it is approved, the council may adopt it by December 2025.
The current plans include 12 broad locations each with 250 new homes and 90 small to medium to large sites providing between five and 249.
These residential sites will be supported by three or four new secondary schools, eight to 10 new primary schools, a minimum of 25,000 new trees and a set of new country parks.
Council leader, councillor Chris White said: “Now is the time for the public to have their say.
“It is vital that we hear from people right across the community and I particularly hope that we get a good response from our younger residents.”
There will also be a pop-up exhibition on the plan, staffed by council offers, at the district council offices on Monday, September 11, from 2pm to 8pm, allowing citizens to come along and see the proposals in person.
