Development proposals across the borough might be affected by planning constraints. It is best to check, before submitting a planning application, whether your proposal could be affected.

The main consideration we have, when looking at a planning application, is the development plan. This includes information on policies such as Green Belt. Also, we must ensure that the development proposed is in keeping with the area, that it will be sustainable and how it could affect the neighbours.

The Hertfordshire Historic Environment Record holds information on where historic remains have been found.
