CPRE Report on Hertsmere Local Plan

Full report by CPRE Hertfordshire (Campaign for the Protection of Rural England) can be found here:

Key concerns with the Draft Plan are:

  1. Emphasis on economic growth at the expense of nature and the environment
  2. Lack of protection of Green Belt as a Strategic Objective for the Plan
  3. Overprovision of housing based on out-of-date data
  4. Failure to address climate change
  5. Underestimation of the opportunities for regeneration and reuse of previously developed land
