Have your say on South West Herts’ future

We're asking for your views on the future of South West Herts and the draft vision for the area.

The South West Hertfordshire 2050 - Realising Our Potential document, includes a draft vision and objectives for the area until 2050 and marks the first formal plan-making stage for the South West Herts Joint Strategic Plan, which is being drawn up by ourselves, St Albans City and District Council, Hertsmere Borough Council, Three Rivers District Council and Watford Borough Council, supported by Hertfordshire County Council.

Please take the time to tell us what particular issues matter to you as the feedback we receive will help us maximise the opportunity to obtain the infrastructure crucial to future development.

The SW Herts JSP will not replace Local Plans. Dacorum, Hertsmere, St Albans City and District, Three Rivers and Watford are still required to have in place their own up-to-date plans.

Responses can be submitted until 5pm on Friday 4 November 2022.

Residents’ telephone survey

We are conducting a residents’ telephone survey with a sample of 1,000 residents from across Dacorum. The survey asks residents for their views on local services and various aspects of life in their local area. The consultation period will run through to the middle/end of September 2022.

We have commissioned Opinion Research Services (ORS), an independent social research company, to conduct the telephone interviews for this survey. To ensure a cross section of the borough's population is represented, ORS uses a randomly selected sample of addresses and landlines provided from the telephone exchanges, as well as purchasing lists from other commercially available sources. We have not provided any customer contact details for this research.

The sample is set to quota in terms of age, gender, working status and ethnicity to ensure the achieved sample is representative of Dacorum's population.

The telephone number ORS is using for this survey is 01462 886375.

Why we are consulting

We want to know how you feel about your local area and how you feel we are doing in delivering local services.

Give us your views

If ORS contacts you, please take the time to take part in the survey. Your views and opinions on your local area and on the services we provide are important to us.

Your input and time in this research will be greatly appreciated.
