Green belt petition handed to council
Three areas, currently part of the green belt, are being considered for possible development as part of the Welwyn Hatfield District plan review. They include:
North Mymms District Green Belt Society (NMDGBS) fears that if the builders get the go-ahead, up to 700 extra homes could be built locally.
The NMDGBS distributed 1,600 leaflets in the area and so far 22.5% have been returned. Of the 372 responses, 358 gave supported protecting the green belt. A public meeting in May was attended by 185 local residents.
The petition, which was gathered following that meeting, was handed in at WHDC planning office by local resident and NMDGBS president, Bob Wilson, on Tuesday night.
Another newsletter is to be distributed throughout North Mymms, followed by another public meeting to be held on Monday 30 June at the North Mymms Youth and Community Centre, Station Road, starting at 8pm.
