Housing meetings arranged
Public meetings have been arranged by the local green belt society in order to brief local residents about the options being considered for increased housing provision in the area.
There will be three meetings, two in March and one in April. Details will be sent to every household on the North Mymms District Green Belt Society's (NMDGBS) newsletter list, and are being reproduced here for everyone else.
According to Bob Horrocks, Honorary Secretary of the NMDGBS, the dates and details of the meetings are as follows.
Monday 23 March 2009: At the society’s AGM (annual general meeting) at the Brookmans Park United Reformed Church starting at 8pm. Instead of a speaker after the business, there will be a presentation and discussion on 'Welwyn Hatfield Core Strategy issues and options' which include housing possibly on green belt land to the west and south of Brookmans Park. At the meeting it is planned to have suggested response forms setting out arguments against this option.
Monday 30 March 2009: North Mymms Youth and Community Centre, Station Road, behind the catholic church, starting at 8pm. This meeting will concentrate on housing options affecting Welham Green, which are Parsonage Farm (between the village and the A1001 South Way) and Marshmoor. There will also be suggested response forms.
Wednesday 1 April 2009: Potters Bar United Reformed Church, Darkes Lane starting at 8pm. This meeting will concentrate on housing options affecting Little Heath, which are to build east of Little Heath. Again, suggested response forms will be available.
The NMDGBS says the council's consultation period will be from 1 March 2009 to 30 April 2009.
