Local Plan: Promotion of hundreds of homes in Potters Bar, South Mimms and employment in London Colney

Landowners are promoting hundreds of homes in Potters Bar and South Mimms – and employment sites in London Colney – under Hertsmere’s draft Local Plan.
Not all of the 20 new potential sites put forward to Hertsmere Borough Council - for housing and employment - will make it in the final Local Plan.
But if the ones in Potters Bar and South Mimms do go ahead it could mean an estimated 390 new homes for the area.
And a big employment site for London Colney.
Hertsmere councillor Dr Harvey Cohen, who is also portfolio holder for planning, said: "I want to thank everyone again who took the time to comment on and engage in the last round of consultation we did towards our work on Hertsmere's new Local Plan.
"This plan will help decide how the borough develops and grows over the next 17 years.
"As a result of that consultation, additional sites were put forward, and there will be an opportunity for people to comment formally on these new locations - if we decide that they should form part of the new draft Local Plan.
"In the meantime, the new sites are available to view, as well as all the comments made by site promoters, statutory consultees and other local interest groups, in the latest Planning for Growth document on our website."

This newspaper has provided a round up of the sites being considered in South Mimms, London Colney and Potters Bar.
A 2.35 hectre area site is being considering, adjoining Fenny Slade, to provide an estimated 60 homes by property consultants Bidwells.
Another smaller site - 0.28 hectre areas - in Oakfield site is being promoted for estimated capacity of 15 homes.
A large site - 12.3 h.a. - south of Greyhound Lane is being promoted by DLA Town Planning for an estimated capacity of 275 homes.
Along with this a smaller site - 1.31 h.a. - located east of St Albans Road by DLA could mean 40 homes.
Two sites are being promoted by David Lock Associates, located at Tarmac land south of the M25, for employment development.
