A new Central Hertfordshire Green Corridor Group (CHGCG) has been formed to promote the benefits of green spaces in Hertfordshire.

The group is holding a launch event and presentation on Monday, February 8 at 7pm, at the Old Riding School, Hatfield House, to go over the details of their plans.

They are initially looking at the strategic green corridor north of the A414 between Stanborough and Hertford. Their focus is to raise public awareness of the benefits of the green corridor.

CHCGC spokesman David Farmer said: “The proposed developments on the eastern and southern edge of Welwyn Garden City and along the 414 towards Hatfield will permanently alter the ecology and landscape of this area.

“The Commons Local Nature Reserve alone supports 22 UK priority species and six priority habitats and would be seriously and permanently affected by adjacent development.”
