New Local Plan for Three Rivers including Chorleywood

Three Rivers District Council (TRDC) published a Potential Sites Document on Friday 26th October as part of the creation of a New Local Plan.  This new Local Plan will directly influence planning decisions within TRDC, including Chorleywood, for the next 10-15 years.  

The document includes 15 sites in Chorleywood, representing a possible 3000 new homes.

Make your views known - you have until 5:00pm on Friday 21st December 2018 to do this.

See our Local Plan page - for more information including CRA's review of proposed sites.
