Hertfordshire Local Plan Watch - Autumn 2020
The current Local Government structure in Hertfordshire, comprising the County Council and ten district and borough Councils, is increasingly likely to change. Hertfordshire County Council (HCC) has revealed it has commissioned consultants to look at options for “structural reform”. The high-level report identifies options, two of which would create a completely new arrangement for Hertfordshire in the form or either a single unitary or the creation of two unitary authorities. The proposals will, however, face opposition as the Leaders of the 10 other councils have said they oppose the plans.
