Interactive Policies Map

Here you can use an interactive version of the Adopted Policies Map (formerly known as the Local Plan Proposals Map) - useful if you want to find out about the policies that affect a particular site, area or settlement.

The map allows you to search for a location and see which policies within the Development Plan (as at November 2011) apply to your chosen location.

The Core Strategy was adopted on the on the 15 November 2011. The adopted Policies Map includes the remaining "saved policies" of the Adopted Local Plan and the Adopted Core Strategy Policies.

HS2 Route

In July 2013 the Secretary of State for Transport issued a Safeguarding Direction to protect the proposed route of the HS2 scheme through the District. The Council will have to show the safeguarded area on its new Polices Map of the Emerging Local Plan. In the meantime the safeguarded area can be seen by downloading the mapping from the HS2 website -  HS2 safeguarding directions map for Herts and Bucks.
