Examination of our Local Plan (2011-2031)

Holding Direction

In November 2017, the Government put in place a temporary Holding Direction to prevent the Council from adopting the Plan, so that the Secretary of State could consider representations from the local MP largely relating to town centre regeneration and green belt.

At the end of January 2019 Stevenage Borough Council launched Judicial Review proceedings to address the delay and obtain a clear response from Government into the temporary Holding Direction of our Local Plan. The Council remains open to a swift and positive response from Government and our Local MP to release the Plan and support us in our work to reinvigorate the town.
