Green belt society urges community action

It follows “positive changes” to the Local Plan

Green belt meeting details

“Some good news - but must keep up the pressure”

Green belt campaigners have welcomed the recent changes to the Welwyn Hatfield Local Plan, but are calling on local residents to continue to add their voices to efforts to “protect our communities”.

Earlier this month the local authority announced that proposals to build hundreds of new dwellings in North Mymms were being shelved, and that all existing ‘high harm and new ‘moderate high harm’ sites would be removed from the Local Plan.

Last chance to have your say

The North Mymms District Green Belt Society has published details of the changes to the local plan (embedded below).

The society says more than 10,000 comments were submitted during the latest consultation, and a similar response might still be needed to save the green belt from development.
“Please make your views known again. This will be your last chance to have your say.”
The closing date for responses to the revised local plan in 22 March, 2020.

Q & A session on changes to the Local Plan

The latest development are to be discussed at the society’s annual general meeting on Wednesday 26 February at the North Mymms Memorial Hall, Station Road, Welham Green.

The meeting, which starts at 8pm, will feature a question and answer session with planning consultant, Jed Griffiths.
