TRDC's LOCAL PLAN:
YOU have until 20th August 2021 @ 5.00pm to have YOUR SAY about development in Maple Cross. TRDC propose to build 1759 dwellings in our area nearly all on our Green Belt, despite already losing so much Green Belt to HS2! Please read the pdf's below to understand their plans. Whilst we need AFFORDABLE housing for local residents, despite any promises made they will probably never be built - TRDC/Developers do not offer any guarantees! We want TRDC to ensure they provide us with a doctor's surgery and shops for ANY further development in our area. We do not believe their suggestions are sustainable as we do not have the infrastructure: sewers at breaking point; Herts is in drought - chalk streams in peril; only public transport - bus service, another 1750 residents travelling to work on our existing road network? The roadworks at the Cross have shown how quickly congestion is exacerbated!
If you do not have your say and other areas in the District do - prepare for the housing number to escalate upwards by another 1000 dwellings! Simply click on the PDF's to open them: 1st = Planning Objection Suggestions, 2nd = Map of Proposed Sites, 3rd = General Info.
