Core Strategy 'How Many New Homes?' Consultation

Between 6 June and 18 July 2011, Welwyn Hatfield Borough Council consulted on how many homes should be built in the next twenty years.

The borough's housing target up to 2021, the 10,000 homes contained within the 2008 East of England Plan, was scrapped in 2009 following a High Court ruling.

Government proposals to abolish regional plans mean that the council needs to set a new target for the next 20 years.

The council consulted on 5 alternative targets. The targets proposed reflect government projections for housing growth, previous regional targets, long term trends, recent housing targets or no release of the Green Belt. Further details of these targets can be found in our 'How Many New Homes?' consultation leaflet.

The 'How Many New Homes' consultation was accompanied by a pdf icon Housing Targets Sustainability Appraisal [398KB].
