46 New Homes On Greenbelt in Shenley
Land Adjacent And To The Rear Of 52 Harris Lane Shenley Hertfordshire
ACT NOW to object to Hertsmere Council against the planning application to construct up to 46 dwellings with associated landscaping and open space to include access from Harris Lane.
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
Threat to the natural environment: The destruction of our green areas means a loss of natural habitats and is a threat to wild life
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 new homes
Infrastructure: Pressure on roads, schools, trains & medical services
Out of date: Housing demand has actually fallen according to government data
You may have your own to add too. Make sure you list them all when you submit an objection.
OUR GREEN BELT IS UNDER ATTACK, AT SERIOUS RISK AND NEEDS YOUR HELP
Dear Hertsmere Green Belt supporter,
Thank you for being part of the 18,000 objections against Hertsmere’s draft Local Plan which proposed building over 2,500 acres (almost 15%) of our entire Green Belt.
Your support and objections forced our Councillors to listen and shelve the plan. However, by not providing an acceptable draft Local Plan the first time around, this has put our Green Belt at risk. Without a five-year housing supply, our Green Belt is now open to developer destruction.
Our Local Councillors are there to represent us, so they should be rejecting ALL Green Belt proposals until we as residents can be properly consulted on a new and better Local Plan.
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.
We must continue to work together to object to these applications and ensure our elected Councillors listen to us the residents of Hertsmere.
Over the summer, and with an updated website, Save Hertsmere will re-connect with all local ‘Save’ Groups who promise to protect our Green Belt. We therefore need your continued support.
If you are a local action group working to protect the Green Belt in your area of Hertsmere, or wish to join our campaign, please contact us at: firstname.lastname@example.org to join up and work with us, as together we are stronger.
