Current Local Plan
The current adopted Local Plan is The District Local Plan Review 1994. This is being replaced by a new Local Plan.
Local Plans “expired” after 27th September 2007 unless “saved”, in whole or in part.
In 2007, a Direction was made saving specified policies of the District Local Plan Review 1994, ie they are still part of the development plan for St Albans.
The policies listed in the List of Saved Policies are therefore the remaining operational policies within the District Local Plan Review 1994. Any policies not on the list have expired and are no longer part of the development plan.
The Council has prepared a version of the adopted St Albans District Local Plan Review 1994 (adopted 30 November 1994) that shows the saved policies and deleted policies.
The Development Plan
Planning applications have to be decided in line with the Development Plan, unless there is a very good reason not to do so.
