Even though the Emerging Local Plan not signed off, applications continue to build on Green Belt Land in and around the village. Obviously with any building, there will be significant construction work with increasing demands on existing facilities. This for our members and residents include greater use of the B156 which goes straight through Goffs Oak village. Listed below are  new applications that is worth reviewing. If you would like to comment on the proposals, go to Broxbourne website and on the left hand side, click on application search and use the reference number to gain access to the documents for that particular application.

In the supporting documents the Transport statement it states the B156 is not a Trunk Road but a local road and the design will be to allow the access to the proposed development to be suitable to accommodate vehicles turning requirements with minimal vehicle body overhang (section 3.8) and will not require a ghost island to assist access.
A second significant application was submitted on the 11th February 2019.  This is  an individual house on Goffs Lane with an aim to convert a house into to 4 two bedroom flats. Well worth a look.

Windfall sites (by chance)
Finally, our councillors supported objectors and refused to grant planning permission land, developers had ring-fenced to build multi self builds on Green Belt Land. The site is not part of the Emerging Local Plan and on Green Belt Land in a rura! part of Goffs Oak.  The developers have appealed to the Secretary of State against Broxbourne Council.
