Potential Housing sites revealed
Now these sites for the new Local Plan have been announced, a period of consultation will run from 25 October until 20 December when residents will get their say.
The green belt land around Harts Farm is one of those sites, so this is a crucial period for the Little Bushey Community as we come together to fight against it.
Not all the sites that appear in the proposals will be needed, so we must produce cohesive arguments against them, before the Plan is examined in detail next year by the Planning Inspectorate.
Newsletters will be distributed by Hertsmere to every household explaining more about the Local Plan process, promoting a series of exhibitions and explaining how residents can give their views.
With your help we will be researching the key issues and putting together the case for keeping the Little Bushey Lane fields in the green belt and free from housing.
More about the Hertsmere council’s new Local Plan*
The process of creating a new Local Plan for Hertsmere began in 2016. Central government requires all local councils to prepare a Local Plan, which sets out how the numbers of homes and jobs will be boosted in each local authority area.
The government is currently reviewing its forecast on how many homes will be needed here in Hertsmere, but it is expected that land for at least 500 new homes each year will be needed for the next 15 or more years. Land will also be needed for new jobs, leisure space, community facilities and other infrastructure.
