Just a week after sites for thousands of new homes were agreed by the borough council, one of Hertfordshire’s leading countryside campaigners will speak in Brookmans Park.

Kevin Fitzgerald, director of the Hertfordshire Campaign for the Protection of Rural England, will address the AGM of the North Mymms District Green Belt Society on Monday evening.

Society chairman Nigel Matthews told the Welwyn Hatfield Times he expected a good turnout as feelings were running high about the

Draft Local Plan.

He said: “The council has decided to ignore every representation we made. This is the first meeting since the Local Plan was agreed.

”He (Mr Fitzgerald) is a very good speaker.”

The strategic planning document, which will be submitted to the Government provided it is accepted by the full council on April 11, envisages 465 new homes across five sites in the Brookmans Park, Welham Green and Little Heath area.

The meeting in the Brookmans Park United Reformed Church will start at 8pm.
