Local Plan

Our new Local Plan will shape the future of development in our towns and villages between now and 2032. It includes new homes, new jobs and business premises, open spaces and community facilities as well as infrastructure such as roads, schools and healthcare.  It is about supporting the growth of Welwyn Hatfield and a vibrant local economy. You can view more about this using the links below.

We have responded to the latest Examination Inspector’s letter and will not be in a position to consider the options until the results of this year’s monitoring is complete. View more on the latest updates to our Local Plan.

The Examination Inspector has written a number of reports relating to the soundness of the Plan and the need for more sites to be added in to the Plan. These are published as examination documents.
