Local Plan

March 2017 Summary of latest position

LOCAL PLAN: POSITION AFTER 16 MARCH 2017

On 16 March 2017, the Council’s Cabinet Housing and Planning Panel (CHPP) reviewed the public’s responses to the Draft Local Plan. The Panel considered the Officers’ recommendations contained in an extensive review/report and agreed to recommend the Draft Plan, with only minor modifications, to the full Council for approval.

You can see the Officer’s report by clicking here

The key chapters for North Mymms are 20, 21and 22.

For North Mymms, the following sites remain within the Plan.

Welham Green

Marshmoor: SDS7(WeG4b). Proposal for approximately 40,500 sqms of Class B1 employment floorspace; and around 80 dwellings.

Foxes Lane, Dixons Hill Road: HS35(GTLAA01) 12 pitches for Gypsy and Traveller use.

Brookmans Park

Land west of Golf Club Road: HS21 (BrP13) residential use,14 dwellings.

Land east of Golf Club Road: HS23 (BrP14) residential use,10 dwellings.

Land west of Brookmans Park railway station: HS22(BrP4) residential use, 250 dwellings.

Little Heath

Land south of Hawkshead Road: HS24 (BrP7) residential use, 100 dwellings.

Land north of Hawkshead Road: HS25 (LHe1) residential use, 35 dwellings.

What happens now?

The draft goes to the full Council for approval. Once approved it will be submitted for examination by an Inspector from the Planning Inspectorate to determine whether the Plan is “Sound”.

Is it possible to make further representations?

At this stage you could write to the Council to urge it not to approve the Draft. NMDGBS has asked to give evidence to the Inspector at the public examination and hope we will be able to do so.

July 2016

We attended the Welwyn Hatfield Borough Council meeting of the Cabinet Housing Planning Panel on 13 June 2016 where ALL the sites recommended by the Planning Officers for the Draft Local Plan were voted in favour of (with the inclusion of additional site Hat11) by the six Conservative Councillors, including Brookmans Park and Little Heath ward councillor Stephen Boulton (Chairman). The three Labour Councillors and one Lib/Dem Councillor voted against.

WHAT DOES THIS MEAN FOR NORTH MYMMS?
The following are the recommended sites:

WELHAM GREEN:
WeG4b Marshmoor – 80 dwellings and 40,500m2 of employment land
GTLAA01 Foxes Lane – 12 pitches
Hat11 Land at Southway (next to New Barnfield) – 120 dwellings

BROOKMANS PARK:
BrP4 Land west of Brookmans Park – 250 dwellings
BrP13 West of Golf Club Road – 14 dwellings
BRP14 East of Golf Club Road – 10 dwellings

LITTLE HEATH:
BrP7 Hawkshead Road (on a reduced site area) – 100 dwellings
LHe1 Land north of Hawkshead Road – 35 dwellings

WHAT HAPPENS NEXT?
The next Cabinet Housing Planning Panel meeting will be on 14 July 2016 when the Councillors will be approving the Final Draft. We will be attending and will keep you informed.

The Draft Local Plan will have a final Public Consultation in the summer.

As soon as we have the final details we will be holding Public meetings in Welham Green and Brookmans Park and will keep you informed with our newsletter.

CONFUSED?
Although all the Welham Green sites are considered suitable, they have not been put forward because of limited primary school capacity and no alternative site has been identified to deliver an expanded school.

Recently reports in the Welwyn Hatfield Times have suggested the inclusion of WeG15 Potterells in the Draft Local Plan. The original proposal for Potterells does not not have a primary school but Colin Haigh, Head of Planning, revealed at the 13 June 2016 Cabinet Housing Planning Panel meeting that they have now received a letter from the site promotor for a proposed school. We have queried this with Planning and have been advised that the proposal came in too late to be included in the Local Plan. It could be raised during the consultation period and maybe during the Inspector’s examination.

We will be monitoring this situation and will keep you informed.

The Planning Officers have stated that if WeG15 Potterells came forward then it could include WeG3 Welham Manor – 45 dwellings (potential for 64 subject to alternative access arrangements) with access from Potterells.

July 2015 - Marshmoor Development Proposal

Public Consultation and Exhibition
North Mymms Memorial Hall
Station Road
Thursday 6th August 2015
3.00-8.00pm

Developers have submitted a proposal to Welwyn Hatfield Borough Council to build a business park with 25,000m2 of floor space and also 110-120 new dwellings on the green belt fields between the Rookery Café and behind and beyond GT Towing on the A1000 Great North Road.

We think it is important that as many people as possible attend and voice their opinions because a low turnout can be used by the developer to support their planning application.

December 2014 - Local Plan Update

16 December 2014

Members of our Committee have been attending Council Housing and Planning Panel meetings since early September 2014. At the last meeting held on 11 December discussion took place between councillors to decide which housing sites should be recommended for public consultation.

We can report that the status of the Marshmoor site has now been changed from “finely balanced” to “more favourable”. The rationale given was job creation. This now means that all sites in Welham Green and Little Heath are classified as “more favourable” and all of which are on Green Belt land. All green belt sites in Brookmans Park remain as “finely balanced”

It was agreed that only the “more favourable” sites would be put forward for public consultation in January. If the Cabinet decide to accept the recommendation, the total housing for the borough will reduce to 10,100.

The Panel also recommended that the option of a new garden city be included in the Public Consultation.

Consideration of the recommendations to be put forward will be decided at the Cabinet Meeting on Wednesday 17 December 2014. Members of the public are welcome to attend.

The Green Belt Society is disappointed by the lack of support shown by our local Parish representatives in protecting our Green Belt.

December 2014 - Council Lobbies for New Garden City

10 December 2014

Following letters, local meetings and a petition Welwyn Hatfield Borough Council are writing to Eric Pickles, the Secretary of State for Communities and Local Government regarding new Garden Cities. The text of the letter is as follows:

Dear Sir
New Garden Cities and New Towns
I am writing to let you know that Welwyn Hatfield is working hard in accordance with NPPF guidance to prepare a Local Plan for the borough that seeks to meet the development needs of the area.
Over the last few months we have presented housing and employment evidence to our Planning Panel which indicates an objective need for about 12,500 dwellings and 12,000 new jobs by 2031, plus further growth in our housing market area. We anticipate that about 4,900 homes can be built on brownfield sites which means that up to 7,600 may have to be directed to green belt locations.
We have hosted two very well attended Panel meetings to consider all of the urban and green belt sites that have so far been promoted for inclusion in the forthcoming Local Plan. It was at these meetings that councillors and members of the public queried the potential for new garden cities and new towns as a preferable way of meeting the country’s housing needs, rather than the continuous expansion of towns and villages into valuable and much-loved green belt land. There is increasing frustration within communities but the reality is that we have no genuinely alternative growth options.
Welwyn Hatfield has the experience of both Welwyn Garden City and Hatfield New Town as a way of providing high quality homes, job opportunities and associated infrastructure and services all with green and pleasant environments. The desirability of these communities as places to live and work indicates their merit as a development model, and is indeed recognised by the NPPF.
The Council appreciates the current Government view that new garden cities should be “locally led” but is constrained by the fact that there are no local aspirations or site opportunities within this area to accommodate a new community of sufficient critical mass. We also have strong doubts about the planning and political ability to deliver new settlements through co-operation with surrounding authorities. The nearest plausible locations are outside of our housing market area.
We consider that new communities can only be delivered if the Government takes a prominent and pro-active role in partnership with local authorities, statutory bodies and all other interested parties.

November 2014 - Local Plan Meeting

27 November 2014

Claire Taylor represented the North Mymms District Green Belt Society at a meeting on 27th November organized by the Brookmans Park Residents Association to give local people information regarding the Local Plan. Paul Zukowskyj gave a resume of the proposed plan and questions were put by the audience who filled the United Reformed Church to full capacity, with many people having to stand. On behalf of the Green Belt Society the residents were urged to send in individual written replies to the Public Consultation in January 2015.

It was decided unanimously that no new building should take place on the Green Belt at Welham Green.

We would urge everyone to make their views known when the Public Consultation takes place in January 2015.
