DACORUM’S CORE STRATEGY: MODIFICATIONS CONSULTATION – DBC Explanation

The Core Strategy was submitted for examination in June 2012.  This was conducted by a Planning Inspector and included a hearing in October 2012. Following that examination, the Council is proposing some changes to the Core Strategy.

 

The Council has published a ‘Modifications document’ for consultation.  This contains:

(1)           Main Modifications to the Pre-Submission Core Strategy

(2)           An invitation to submit views on the implications, if any, of the recent revocation of the Regional Strategy (the East of England Plan) on the Core Strategy.

(3)           Minor Modifications to the Pre-Submission Core Strategy.

There is also an explanatory introduction.

 

Representations must be received on the ‘Modifications document’ by the Council between Wednesday 23rd January and 5.15pm Wednesday 6th March 2013.  All representations on the first two items will be passed to the Planning Inspector: representations on the minor modifications will be considered by the Council only.

 

Representations can be made in writing on the prescribed form to the Strategic Planning and Regeneration Team, Dacorum Borough Council, Civic Centre, Marlowes, Hemel Hempstead, Hertfordshire, HP1 1HH, or via electronic communication using the Council’s online planning portal, or by emailing the prescribed form tostrategic.planning@dacorum.gov.uk

 

A Sustainability Report Addendum, which assesses the potential social, economic and environmental implications of the modifications, has also been published for comment.

  • on the Council’s website www.dacorum.gov.uk/corestrategyexamination
