Last night, two Committee members of GOCA attended the Council Planning and Regulatory Meeting held in Cheshunt.  The Council reviewed a high number of Planning applications of which two  applications were from Goffs Oak, one particularly  significant to Goff’s Oak was for 23 houses on the Ashfield Nursery on Newgatestreet Road.  This was rejected by the Council for many reasons including being within the Green Belt, the harm to the openness of the Green Belt which cannot be outweighed by special circumstances and would not positively contribute towards thew rural area character of the area. 

Another application well worth a mention, mainly because of the  large number of the public in attendance and the size of the requested development.  This included local residents and football supporters from the Cheshunt Football Club on Theobalds Lane.  A large proportion of time was given to this application as despite being on Green Belt Land, it included 161 dwellings and then later a new statium.  This application was rejected for a significant number of reasons includdidng being on Green Belt Land and not part of the emerging Local Plan.
