Have your say now on the new draft Local Plan for Hertsmere

Consultation open
You can now have your say on the future of Hertsmere, with a public consultation on our new draft Local Plan open until 29 May 2024.

The Local Plan matters to all of the borough’s communities as it maps out the strategy and vision for Hertsmere until 2040. It focuses on a number of key areas, notably housing and employment site allocations, and the revisions that have been made since the previous consultation in 2021.

These revisions include a 40 per cent reduction in the amount of Green Belt being lost and 9,400 new homes to meet our housing need – a fall of 22 per cent from the previous draft Local Plan.

To take part in the consultation, which will be open for eight weeks until midday on Wednesday 29 May 2024, please click the link below. You can also have your say by post by writing to Planning Policy, Hertsmere Borough Council, Civic Offices, Elstree Way, Borehamwood, WD6 1WA or by emailing
