Residents are invited to give their views on a Kings Langley Neighbourhood Plan, which will influence the way their area grows and develops into the future.
Kings Langley Parish Council (KLPC) has submitted its proposed plan to Dacorum Borough Council (DBC) to carry out a further statutory consultation.
Once the consultation is completed, an independent examiner will be appointed to review the plan.
If the plan is approved, it will be the subject of a public referendum voted on by residents in the parish area of Kings Langley.
Neighbourhood Plans establish general planning policies and play an important part in decisions on planning applications.
Having a Neighbourhood Plan also means that parishes receive a greater proportion of Community Infrastructure Levy arising from developments in their area than those without a Neighbourhood Plan.
Neighbourhood planning activity can only formally take place in areas specifically designated by the council as a neighbourhood area.
The consultation runs from now until midnight on Friday, January 28. Comments received will be passed to the examiner for their consideration.
The plan, its supporting documents and details on how to respond are available on the Council’s website: www.dacorum.gov.uk/klnp
Comments can also be made by email to email@example.com or sent to Strategic Planning, Dacorum Borough Council, The Forum, Marlowes, Hemel Hempstead, Hertfordshire, HP1 1DN.
A comment form (available on request) can also be sent by email or post to the team.
John Morrish, the parish councillor leading the project on behalf of the KLPC, commented: “We have reached the final stages of our Neighbourhood Plan for Kings Langley so I would really appreciate if villagers would have look at the plan on our website and give feedback to the consultation.
