Stop the plans for a Gypsy/Traveller site in Tolpits Lane, Rickmansworth

Richard Overfield started this petition to Three Rivers District Council (Three Rivers District Council)

Tolpits Lane is not suitable for this development. It is an over used road which is not suitable for the traffic load it already carries. Access to the site from Watford is obstructed by a sharp bend and a bump backed bridge, and access from Rickmansworth is obstructed by a height restricted bridge carrying the Metropolitan Line. There is no footpath on this part of Tolpits Lane and it is unsafe for pedestrians and there is no bus service to this part of Tolpits Lane. The proposed site entrance is unsafe and does not allow access for long vehicles. Of all the sites surveyed across Hertfordshire this site was the least suitable, yet is now the only site being considered. There is already a shortage of school places in the area and this will increase the burden on these schools.
