‘GARDEN VILLAGE’ THREATENS GREEN BELT AND UNDERMINES NATIONAL POLICY

Countryside Campaigners CPRE Hertfordshire are appalled at yet another threat to Hertfordshire’s precious Green Belt. The major housing, employment, retail and hotel development is being promoted on greenfield land at Hoddesdon. It would destroy a large area of Green Belt countryside, and undermine the Government’s National Planning Policies.

Kevin FitzGerald, CPRE Hertfordshire Honorary Director, stressed:
‘It seems that people wish to turn this once pleasant, country market town into a North London suburb by destroying the green fields which surround it.’
