SO a battle in the High Court is now expected over the controversial East of England plan.

But the legal procedure will not be about the proposals themselves, but the process in which they were produced.

Either way, the plan for the region remains in place, and is still a threat to our environment.

We are being asked to absorb an enormous amount of housing and the creation of jobs across the region.

North Herts is expected to play its role and take its share of the burden.

But from the days that the plan was originally produced and through the drawn-out public consultation exercise there was criticism of the proposals.

And it just wasn't not-in-our-backyard criticism.

Planning experts and those involved in future development were all critical of the fact that unless there was sufficient infrastructure, no plan would work.

Perhaps it is a point that can be raised when the bewigged members of the legal profession face each other across the court
