Did you know?
Hertsmere Borough Council plans to build nearly 3,000 houses in Bushey, 1200 of them in Little Bushey alone.
ALL ON GREENBELT LAND!!!
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Out of date: Housing demand has actually fallen according to government data
These are just some of the reasons to object to the Plan.
