ENSURING HERTSMERE’s ‘Green Belt Matters’

Register now to join our mailing list of the latest Green Belt planning applications, news and developments from Save Hertsmere

if you have already objected to a campaign, we hold your details already


    Save Hertsmere was originally set up to aggregate all local campaigns against the council’s Draft Local Plan to build over 12,000 homes over 2,500 acres (almost 15%) of our entire Green Belt on Green Belt land.

    Thanks to your support and objections (18k+ of them!) we forced our Councillors to listen and shelve the plan.
    Thank you for your continued support.

    However, by not providing an acceptable draft Local Plan the first time around, this has put our Green Belt at risk. Numerous applications on the Green Belt have been submitted since the Plan was shelved and since approved. The map below highlights the danger facing us all.

    Hertsmere’s residents have always been clear, they want to protect their Green Belt, have infrastructure provided first and prioritise affordable housing.


    Throughout 2024 we will still face threats from new speculative planning applications, we expect the results of existing planning applications and appeals, and the new Hertsmere Local Plan will be made public this spring.


    During 2024 Save Hertsmere will continue to help you as residents protect your Green Belt from housing and other developments, have infrastructure such as medical facilities and adequate roads and buses provided first, and prioritise any housing to be truly affordable for our local families.

    You have the choice to vote for those you trust to save Hertsmere’s Green Belt
    We must continue to work together to object to these applications and ensure the Councillors you elect will listen to us the residents of Hertsmere.

    Reasons to Object

    Greenbelt loss: The greenbelt was created to prevent urban sprawl by keeping green buffers between settlements. It is the lungs of London and prevents urban sprawl.

    Threat to the natural environment:The destruction of our green areas means a loss of natural habitats and is a threat to wildlife.

    Loss of Farmland: Means a loss of local produce

    Climate Crisis: How will we ever meet our carbon reduction commitments if we concrete over our green fields?

    Pollution: Created by traffic from the many thousands of new homes, with no sign of better roads either.

    Infrastructure: Pressure on roads, schools, trains & medical services, with no agreed plan to provide these.

    Out of date: Housing demand has actually fallen according to government data and housing targets are being changed.

    Please remind your Councillors of their promises to protect ur Green Belt
