Site Allocations 2014

Site Allocations Pre-Submission Consultation 2014

What the consultation was about?

The consultation on the pre-submission version of the Site Allocations in line with Regulation 19 of the Town and Country Planning (Local Planning) (England) (Amendment) Regulations 2012 took place between 24 September and 5 November 2014.

The Site Allocations follow on from and support the Core Strategy which was adopted in September 2013 and sets out the planning framework for Dacorum for the next 20 years. The Site Allocations Development Plan Document (DPD) is the next part of the framework. Its principal role is to deliver the objectives of the Core Strategy by forming detailed proposals and requirements for sites and areas.

It allocates sites for future development; defines the boundaries of planning designations; and ensures appropriate infrastructure is identified and delivered alongside new development. This includes consultation on the master plans for Green Belt housing sites known as Local Allocations.


The pre-submission document is made up of a Written Statement and a Map Book. The Map Book shows amendments and additions required to the existing Policies Map that accompanies the Dacorum Borough Local Plan.
