CRA and Planning
The association’s activities cover the full range of planning matters affecting the parish including planning applications, the development of the new Chorleywood Neighbourhood Plan, the ongoing development of the new Local Plan by Three Rivers District Council and reviewing and, where appropriate, commenting on new government rules and regulations on planning matters.
No resident should feel they are alone when facing the complexities of the planning system and, as such, the association is available to provide advice and support to all residents with regard to planning applications. This includes providing regular updates to residents on our subscription list with regard to recently posted planning applications and planning appeals.

Chorleywood Residents’ Association Planning Policy
Adopted at the AGM on 20th May 2020
Recognising that Chorleywood residents have conflicting views on planning applications, the Chorleywood Residents’ Association’s policy is to take a neutral position. The CRA’s Planning team will continue to support all Chorleywood residents with expert planning advice and, if they wish, attend planning committee meetings in support of their case. In doing so they will not put forward any views as being those of the CRA.
CRA’s Planning team has great experience in how local authorities act on planning matters, and regularly attends local, District and Parish, planning meetings. Their independent advice and help is invaluable to Chorleywood residents.
For the avoidance of doubt, all CRA Executive Committee members remain free to submit their own personal comments on any planning application, for or against.
