New Local Plan
St Albans City and District Council are preparing a new Local Plan 2020-2038. It will affect what can be built and where up to 2038 in the District.
Between 25 January and 8 March 2021, the Council held a ‘call for sites’. Over 200 sites have been submitted as part of this process. The Council are currently reviewing these sites (as well as hundreds of others) as part of its Housing and Employment Land Availability Assessment. A wide range of other technical work is currently underway including: a comprehensive investigation of Urban Capacity; a new Green Belt Review; Sustainability Appraisal and Strategic Environmental Assessment; and an Infrastructure Delivery Plan.
