Residents’ Associations across the Three Rivers district believe the Local Plan recently released for consultation contains plans for significantly too much housing resulting in unnecessary damage to our environment and, in particular, Green Belt.
Independent analysis shows that the Three Rivers district needs approximately 4,800 new homes over the fifteen-year period of the plan to provide sufficient homes for local residents including ensuring that there are enough homes to bring the proportion of the population in all age groups who are householders back to at least that seen at the start of this century.
The plan put forward for consultation contains approximately double this amount, resulting in more land being handed over to development than necessary and, potentially, new homes being built without an obvious demand.
We call upon Three Rivers District Council to withdraw this plan and revise it to better protect our environment whilst delivering the homes we need.
