The North Mymms District Green Belt Society (NMDGBS) has listed the reasons why it feels the proposed development sites in the parish should be opposed. The group has published three documents on its website explaining the “technical” reasons why sites proposed for development should not be included in Welwyn Hatfield’s Local Plan.

North Mymms Parish Council (NMPC) has also published its list of “Suggested Planning Reasons”, both for and against.

Recently, Welwyn Hatfield Borough Council (WHBC) sent out a reminder for people to add their comments on the proposals before the deadline of Tuesday 18 June (UPDATE: extended until 9am on Monday 24 June).

42 new and re-promoted sites in North Mymms that could be developed to accommodate more than 3,200 new homes were put forward earlier this year when the local authority made a fresh call for sites after the independent inspector ruled that the current Draft Plan didn’t meet the local housing requirement. All are in the green belt.

The NMDGBS held a public meeting about the proposed developments on 3 June. The following handouts were available at that meeting and have been published online by the society.

Bell Bar and Brookmans Park



Little Heath and Swanley Bar



Welham Green and South Hatfield
