James Brokenshire, Secretary of State at the Ministry of Housing, Communities and Local Government has put a freeze on East Hertfordshire District Council’s housing plan.

 

In his letter to the Council announcing his decision, Mr Brokenshire says that he has received requests to intervene from MP Steven Mc Partland and from CPRE Hertfordshire as well as three parish councils and two local groups.

WHAT'S HAPPENS NOW? Stephen McPartland has done well to get a holding order. He does however only have 3% of the new dwellings in his patch. If the Secretary of State is to intervene residents in Sir Oliver Heald's and Mark Prisk MP constituencies now urgently need to lobby their MP and ask them to back Stephen McPartland in getting the Plan suitably amended.

If you're MP Is either Sir Oliver Heald, or Mark Prisk contact one or the other, tell them of your concerns about the way the Examination has been conducted, point out the key issues raised by CPRE Hertfordshire.

MOST IMPORTANTLY ask them to support Stephen McPartland and have this Plan suitably amended.  

We are now in a different ball game where the volume of residents directly lobbying their MP will make a difference.

“Chairman Richard Bullen spoke to the members of the charity present at the Annual General Meeting that took place at Hitchin Priory of 4 September 2018.  The text of his address follows.  Richard also thanked all of the members of staff and the volunteers who make it possible for CPRE Hertfordshire to keep standing up for Hertfordshire’s countryside.”

Our September walk of just under 6 miles explores Green Belt countryside in North Hertfordshire District to the east of Luton. The walk described starts and finishes in Breachwood Green, goes north-east through King’s Walden to reach Ley Green, then heads south-west to Tea Green, on the edge of the area proposed for housing.

This 3.1 mile circular walk was originally devised by CPRE Herts' former Chairman David Irving and revised by Trustee Eliza Hermann.

 

The walk starts and finishes at the car park for Waterford Heath Nature Reserve, which is on Vicarage Lane just east of the railway line.

The walk is also easily accessible by public transport. From Hertford North rail station walk 1 mile to the northeast through Bengeo to the junction of Sacombe Road and Wadesmill Road, and begin the circular walk from there.

Although the walk is mostly level and there are no stiles, there are a few short ascents and descents and one set of steps.
