We encourage the provision of adequate cycle parking, according to standards defined in the Local Plan, at educational establishments, retail centres, public transport interchanges, leisure facilities, and other major journey hubs. Employers will be encouraged to provide cycle parking through the Dacorum Green Business Club.
The intent of this policy is to seek to ensure that provision is made for cycle facilities at existing locations, to the same standard as would currently be required at similar new developments.
Our main role in promoting cycling provision will be through publicity, ensuring provision of facilities through development proposals, and working with other bodies with appropriate resources for the provision of cycle facilities.
The Dacorum Cycle Strategy document (PDF 396 KB)
Assesses the relative merits of three growth options (northern, eastern and dispersed) for meeting the target of 17,000 new homes (2006-2031) set out in the East of England Plan. Note: This regional target has since been quashed and Regional Spatial Strategies revoked.
The Urban Design Assessment was completed in January 2006.
The study covers the borough's three towns (Hemel Hempstead,
Berkhamsted and Tring) and three large villages (Markyate,
Bovingdon and Kings Langley).
A strategy plan and set of settlement principles are provided
for each of the towns and villages. These define the broad "Urban
Design Zones" into which the settlements have been sub-divided.
These Urban Design Zones have been created on the basis of existing
characteristics, reflecting the morphology, density and typologies
of each area, and an understanding of how these areas should be
viewed in the light of any potential development or regeneration of
Key 'gaps' in the coverage of existing Local Plan policies and
supplementary guidance are highlighted and suggestions made as to
how these could be addressed through the new Local Development
