It will also be available at all libraries, Hatfield housing office, the Council offices in Welwyn Garden City, town and parish council offices (in Cuffley, Hatfield, Welham Green, Welwyn, Woolmer Green and Colney Heath) and Essendon Primary School.

The ‘Issues and Options’ paper includes research and analysis of trends undertaken to date and findings from public consultation on the planning challenges. A summary and Guide to the Core Strategy Issues and Options will be produced to support the consultation.

If you would like to be involved in the core strategy consultation, you can e-mail your details to planningpolicy (at) welhat (dot) gov (dot) uk or telephone the council on 01707 357532.
