SIR - My husband and I are very concerned regarding the proposal by the University of Hertfordshire to build a nightclub in College Lane.

Exactly where is the site to be? We can only guess that it is to be at the top of College Lane - if so, then the south Hatfield area loses yet again.

We already have the regular nights arranged for the beginning of term, etc., but to have the constant boom, boom on a regular basis would have an effect on residents health, bearing in mind that non-university people have to go to work early in the morning and many students notoriously do not!

Before the students rise up denying that statement - we live near many student accommodations and are very aware of their comings and goings. (We also know that there are many hard working students - that statement is not addressed to you).

Traffic that time of night will be seriously affected (plus doors banging, idiots revving, etc) or will the buses run to cater for the drinkers. Probably not.

If I sound a little biased, forgive me, we moved here many years ago because it was a quiet family area.

Now retired, we had hoped for a little peace. Sadly I believe that we are not going to get it.
