Harpenden Neighbourhood Plan’s journey so far:

Throughout 2017 the Harpenden Neighbourhood Plan was prepared by local residents for local residents. It underwent wider community scrutiny during three periods of community engagement. More than 3,600 Harpenden residents helped shape the Harpenden Neighbourhood Plan by completing surveys, and 680 people attended drop-in events to give their views on it. The Harpenden Neighbourhood Plan was amended following each period of engagement to meet the views of residents.

In February 2018, the Harpenden Neighbourhood Plan was submitted to St Albans City and District Council for their consideration before being passed on to independent examination during July to ensure it met the conditions for a neighbourhood plan. The Harpenden Neighbourhood Plan passed the independent examination and on 18 October 2018, St Albans City and District Council accepted the Independent Examiner’s modifications.

The referendum will take place on 7 February 2019. At the Referendum, Harpenden residents will vote for whether or not they want the Harpenden Neighbourhood Plan to be taken into account by the Local Planning Authority (SADC) when they make decisions in regard to Harpenden planning applications. The referendum will be very similar to a normal election with polling cards, polling stations and postal votes.

It is not part of the St Albans local plan as that is a separate document. Once in place, they will both individually form part of the Planning Development Framework for the area.
