More Reasons to Object..
Green Belt loss: This development on on the Green Belt which was created to prevent urban sprawl and protect the openness of the landscape.
No alternatives considered: The applicants have failed to look for alternatives, simply saying their justification is to build adjacent to their existing premises. If accepted this et a worrying precedent for further development.
Threat to the natural environment: This application prospers to tear down a large number of historic hedgerows classified as ‘important’ under the Hedgerows Regulations 1997
Visual impact: These very large buildings will be clearly visible day and night and move development towards neighbouring settlements.
Effect on national and local traffic: This application will cause significant and permanent deleterious traffic effects across the locality

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.
