Shenley Grange - Objection to 177 new homes on Green Belt land
ACT NOW to object to Hertsmere Council against the planning application to contruct 177 new homes on 19 acres of Green Belt Land. This development will create untold burden on infrastructure and traffic issues opposite existing school.
Reasons to Object
Inappropriate Development in relation to the current Hertsmere Local Plan.
Unjustified Claim of Housing Need: Principle of Consistency
No Precedent from Shelved Local Plan
Inappropriate Development in The Green Belt
Development is contrary to the Shenley Neighbourhood Plan.
Incompatibility with existing Shenley Conservation Area
Irreparable Harm to Biodiversity
Serious Traffic Issues around Shenley School
Unsustainable in context of local and national planning policy
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.
