London Colney Garden Village Consultation

We the undersigned

  1. Note the ongoing consultation taking place in Hertsmere District regarding the building of a garden village around Coursers Farm and Salisbury Hall.
  2. Note that the proposed village will be joined to London Colney but that no consultation is taking place with London Colney residents in St. Albans District.
  3. Note that any development will have a major impact on the transport infrastructure around London Colney which is already overloaded.
  4. Note that the boundary between St. Albans and Hertsmere runs through London Colney, with McDonalds, the Holiday Inn Express and Mosquito Museum all in Hertsmere.

Call upon Hertsmere borough and St. Albans district councils

  1. to work together on strategic developments in the London Colney area and ensure that residents on both sides of the border are effectively consulted on any proposals
  2. to jointly work together to address existing issues affecting the transport infrastructure in the London Colney area.

    Outrageous to leave so many people in the dark who will be greatly affected by this proposal.

    This would change the very nature of the village and must not proceed without agreement by those affected.

    I don’t understand why no provision has been made to have a public consultation as this development will impact not only the areas directly involved but also St Albans which is already under severe pressure.


    It already takes 20/30 mins + to get in and out of the City due to traffic combined with what can only be described as the most ridiculously poorly planned road network and the school provision can’t meet demand due to a council and MP that hasn’t the intelligence to forward plan. Planning in St Albans has to be the worst in the country. Just full of yes men who don’t even live in St Albans. Make this new villlage completely self sufficient – school, GP services and a road network that avoids already congested areas. Stop just building houses which aren’t affordable anyway without creating infrastructure with it.

    Building a village on Handley Pages Airfield would provide the housing required and be more acceptable that the proposed Railfreight Depot.

    This will affect residents of St Albans and Hatfield, not just Hertsmere.

    The Green Belt must be protected.

    There is insufficient infrastructure to sustain this and the increase in pollution from increased traffic would be untenable. We are already surrounded by traffic fines from M25 and A414. The amount of traffic would be ruinous to Colney Heath.

    Any proposal of 4,000 new homes has to be discussed with the larger towns in the vicinity. It is not going to exist on its own
