Consider development needs
Once again a number sites in and around Royston have been suggested for development including an area of more than 17 hectares, which is the entire field behind the eastern side of Hawthorn Way and part of Field Crescent. This would be a serious overdeve
Once again a number sites in and around Royston have been suggested for development including an area of more than 17 hectares, which is the entire field behind the eastern side of Hawthorn Way and part of Field Crescent.
This would be a serious overdevelopment of a Greenfield site, which would put much pressure on the infrastructure of Royston. Our Doctors, Dentists and Schools are already struggling to cater for the current population, if the plans from the 1990s are anything to go by, a further 300-400 houses would make matters much worse.
Do we really need more housing? Our children will not be able to afford these houses and in the present financial climate, will anybody buy them?
Valuable agricultural land and green areas should not be used for building, we need more amenities not less.

Obviously I have a vested interest living next to the proposed site, but I urge all residents of Royston to object to this and other developments, please don't be complacent and hope it won't happen. If you value where you live, write to the LDF Team at the Council's office in Letchworth,make your views known to your local Councillor or contact Oliver Heald.
The LDF team can be emailed on email@example.com, the site number is 85.
