The next Planning ana Regulatory meeting  is scheduled to take place at the Council Offices in Cheshunt this coming Tuesday, 18th December 2018, starting at 1900hrs. There is a packed agenda and includes 9 applications for building and development within the Borough of Broxbourne, all of which appears to be outside the proposed Local Plan. Could this  be what is referred to as ‘windfall’ sites and therefore additional to the proposed sites that is outlined in the LocaL Plan?

The 3 applications that is of particular interest to our members and residents of Goffs Oak is the  proposed 23 dwellings on Ashfield Nursery, Newgatestreet Road, a resubmission for 163 dwellings and new football grounds on the Cheshunt Football Grounds site and an amended application  for an already approved  development for 3 properties on Rosebury Farm, Crouch Lane.  

It is the proposed development at the Ashfield Nursery site, Newgatestreet Road that has raised local interest and concern and Herts CPRE has objected on the grounds being inappropriate within the Green Belt and would result in harm to the openness of the Green Belt, which would not be clearly outweighed by any special circumstsnces. Whilst it is recommended that this application is refused, it is dependant by the votes on The night.  Why not come along to show your support.  If you come early, you  should be able to get car park in and a hot drink.

  1. Throughout the grand pattern of things you’ll get a B- for effort. Exactly where you lost everybody ended up being in your particulars. As people say, details make or break the argument.. And that could not be much more correct here. Having said that, allow me tell you precisely what did do the job. Your authoring is really powerful and this is probably the reason why I am making the effort in order to opine. I do not really make it a regular habit of doing that. Second, although I can certainly see a jumps in logic you come up with, I am not convinced of just how you seem to unite your ideas which make the conclusion. For the moment I shall subscribe to your issue however wish in the near future you actually connect your facts much better.


    1. Hi Bedva

      Just checking to confirm some details in your comments. You have referred to exactly losing everybody was lost and authoring power. Was it the council or the developers or GOCA you are referring to? This update was provided by GOCA who only act as observers of the process. I am more than happy to redirect your comments to who exactly are for.

      As a Community Association, we actively encourage members and residents of Goffs Oak to attend the relevant Council meetings and where possible, with the planning and development applications to comment online so can get an allocated slot to have their say on particular planning applications at the meetings. We are often able to provide support and a committee member to attend as part of the public.

      If you would like to discuss further, why don’t you come to our AGM in May, date to be confirmed.

      Best Wishes
      Chair, GOCA
