The Welwyn Hatfield Local Plan will be the blueprint for future growth in the borough.

The Local Plan will shape the future of development in our towns and villages between now and 2032 - new homes, new jobs and business premises, open spaces and community facilities for people to use and infrastructure such as roads, schools and healthcare.  It is about supporting the growth of Welwyn Hatfield and a vibrant local economy.

Following various rounds of consultation, our Local Plan was submitted for examination in May 2017.

If you would like to be involved in the Local Plan as it progresses, please join the consultation database. You can also email your details to or telephone 01707  357532.
