Green belt update meeting planned
A second public meeting is being arranged to inform local residents about possible changes to the green belt in North Mymms.
The last meeting, held on Monday 19 May, was attended by 185 local residents.
It was called by the North Mymms District Green Belt Society (NMDGBS) to inform residents about the local areas being considered for possible development as part of the Welwyn Hatfield District plan review.
Now, a follow-up meeting is being organised, possibly on Monday 30 June, to update local residents on the progress of a number of areas under consideration.
The NMDGBS is taking particular interest in proposals, which the group says would take three areas of land out of the green belt:
According to the NMDGBS, dates have been set for the consideration of draft proposals for two other local operations which the society has shown an interest in.
The Royal Veterinary College’s (RVC) plans will be considered on 15 July and the morning of 16 July, and the plans submitted by Crown Castle Estates, for the Brookmans Park Transmitting Station, on the afternoon of 16 July and the morning of 17 July.
Members of the public are invited to attend the Welwyn Hatfield District Plan inquiry and, according to the NMDGBS, those who want to speak are given the opportunity to do so.
The sessions are being held at Campus West, Welwyn Garden City from 10am to 5pm.
The Welwyn Hatfield District Plan Review is the proposed framework for development in the district up to the year 2011. Once adopted, it will be used by Welwyn Hatfield Council to decide whether planning applications can go ahead or not.
