The Neighbourhood Plan is currently On Hold

The Preston Neighbourhood Plan must adhere to the policies of the North Hertfordshire Local Plan. Because this is delayed, NHDC have advised that the Preston Neighbourhood Plan should be placed on hold until it can be amended following the publication of the final version of the Local Plan. Once amended, Regulation 16 will be re-run, prior to the Neighbourhood Plan being submitted for examination. Preston residents will be kept updated via the newsletter, PNS and this website.

The Formal Public Consultation (Regulation 16) comments are available online

All the Regulation 16 comments received by NHDC are on their website via this link .
