We prepare, monitor and review planning policies for the Borough of Dacorum. The Local Planning Framework aims to regulate the development and use of land, promote quality of life, meet local needs and find a balance between the demand for development and the protection of the environment.
Local Planning Framework
The Local Planning Framework is a series of documents which are gradually replacing the Local Plan adopted in 2004 (plan period 1991-2011). Many of the policies within the Local Plan have been ‘saved’ and will continue to inform planning policy until they are formally replaced or cancelled under the Local Planning Framework. The Local Plan 2004 should be read alongside the Core Strategy adopted in September 2013 (plan period 2006-2031) for a complete picture of current planning policy.
The Local Planning Framework documents consist of the:
Local Plan (1991-2011) and saved planning policies
