The Council has proposed in its DCS (5-page / 1.9 MB PDF) to divide the district into three zones for residential development excluding retirement housing, applying a different rate in each zone.
Residential development in Zone A, which covers the central part of the district including Chorleywood, Rickmansworth and Croxley Green, will be charged a proposed rate of £180 per sq m. In Zone B, covering the northeast of the district including Kings Langley, Abbots Langley, Leavesden and Eastbury, a rate of £120 per sq m is proposed. A nil rate is proposed for residential development in Zone C, which covers the southeast of the district including Tolpits and South Oxhey.
District-wide rates of £120 per sq m for hotel and retirement housing developments and £60 for retail developments are proposed in the DCL.
A district-wide nil rate is proposed for all other development.
The closing date for the consultation is 4 August.
