An initial exhibition of the outline proposals for this development from Bellcross Homes was held at the Walsworth Community Centre on Thursday 22nd and Saturday 24th June. The exhibition display panels are here – just click. We are very disappointed that the deadline for this phase of the consultation is so short – the deadline is Monday July 3rd!!
Hitchin Forum has made a submission which argues that the application is premature and should be delayed until the Local Plan is approved and in place. See the full text here – Highover Farm Development letter 30.03.17
From the display boards it appears that little consideration has been given to ways to reduce the impact of the development on traffic either at the boundary of the development, or in Hitchin in general, and especially the A505 between the Stotfold roundabout and the station. We will also be highlighting the failure to mention social housing provision. All of these points were part of Hitchin Town Action Group’s response to the Submission Local Plan to which the Forum contributed.
If you wish to make any comments do so by Monday 3rd July. The email address for consultation is HighoverHitchin@rapleys.com
