Campaigners fighting against a speculative planning application by Gladman to build 120 homes near Therfield Heath have welcomed an objection by the Hertfordshire branch of a national environmental charity – ahead of their second residents meeting, being held this week in Royston.

Royston Says No to Gladman’s fight was given a boost by the head of the Hertfordshire branch of the Campaign to Protect Rural England, who has objected strongly to the planning application by the land agent.

Kevin Fitzgerald, director of the CPRE Hertfordshire, said: “We object to this speculative application for inappropriate residential development in the rural area beyond the Green Belt and outside the settlement boundary of Royston.

“2018 marks the 90th Anniversary of CPRE Campaign to Protect Rural England Hertfordshire and we continue to stand up for Hertfordshire’s countryside.”

Royston Says No to Gladman campaigners will be holding an open residents meeting at Coombes Community Centre in Burns Road on Wednesday at 8pm.

  • The increase in traffic on Briary lane could be a problem. Some people already treat Briary Lane as an 'express way' to their cul- de- sacs, or as just a through route to the A10. Indeed many seem to think residents parking on Briary Lane, or entering exiting their driveways, is a major inconvenience to them. It's not, Briary Lane is a residential 'Lane'. It is not simply a through route for people to hurtle along with no regard for residents and pedestrians (especially in wet weather).
