Hertford gasworks

Postby highwood38 » Tue 12 Jun, 2018 1:53 pm

Got through a flyer in the post today about a public consultation on proposals for a new mixed use development at the former Hertford Gasworks (or HERT 2 in the district plan). It's Sat 23rd June from 10am till 3pm at the Mill Bridge Rooms. Apologies for quality but quick photo attached...

This is a pre-submission consultation so it's an exercise by the developers to see what they can get away with.

I doubt they'll get planning permission for anywhere near 450. They're just trying it on.

The traffic along Mead Lane is terrible already, I cannot see how they could make that work.

Mr recollection of the District Plan (available at https://www.eastherts.gov.uk/mainmodifications) is that the proposal is 'at least 200 homes by 2027' and ' 3000sqm of B1 employment and other employment generating uses'.

I went to the exhibition at the Millbridge Rooms this afternoon.

This is a photo of one of the boards. It's hard to take them seriously.

I do love their assessment of the local road capacity - one can see they are selling not buying.
