St Albans Draft Local Plan found unsound

Following the suspension of the St Albans and District Local Plan Examination Hearing sessions in January 2020, the Inspectors have now issued their Post Hearing letter to the Council. In a letter dated April 14, examining inspectors Louise Crosby and Elaine Worthington said they found “serious concerns in terms of legal compliance and soundness” of the draft plan.

It is highly likely that the current process of Plan review will not be recoverable and that St Albans Council will need to start again.
