A South West Herts Joint Strategic Plan has just been issued by the County Council to look at the the area's future to 2050.
Addressing strategic issues, including infrastructure which cross council boundaries, the JSP will need to take account of the Hertsmere Draft Local Plan which is currently out for consultation.
By working together, the local councils will theoretically be in a stronger position to deliver and fund the homes, essential local transport links, health services, educational facilities and employment that local people want to see.
A website has been set up for an initial opportunity to comment until Monday 14 December. There will be a further opportunity to influence the Plan when it is formally issued for comment in 2022.
