Baldock, Bygrave & Clothall Neighbourhood Plan - Submission Version

If you are having trouble using the system, please try our help guide.

Annex B: List of Neighbourhood and Local Plan policies

This annex sets out a full list of policies in the Neighbourhood Plan, together with relevant Local Plan policies produced by North Hertfordshire District Council. At the time of submitting this Neighbourhood Plan, 'saved' policies from the existing Local Plan remain in force, but these are expected to be superseded in 2020-21 once the new North Hertfordshire Local Plan is adopted. Once that happens, this annex and references to Local Plan policy numbers in the Neighbourhood Plan will be updated where necessary. The existing and new Local Plan policies are listed for information only, and those Local Plan policies that are not relevant to the Neighbourhood Area are omitted.
