FARM FEUD: Kings Langley green belt campaigners criticise council ahead of planning inquiry

 Published on: 29th March 2024   |   By: Bryn Holmes   |   Category: Uncategorized

Campaigners fighting plans for more than 130 homes in Kings Langley have expressed their frustration with the council over a recent attempt to withdraw from the upcoming planning inquiry.

Plans for 135 dwellings at Rectory Farm were previously rejected by Three Rivers District Council.

On Tuesday, April 9, an appeal against this decision will go to the Planning Inspectorate.

Kings Langley & District Residents’ Association (KLDRA) is working to make sure the development does not go ahead. However, they have recently suffered a setback.

The other council involved in this development, Dacorum Borough Council (DBC), has sought to withdraw from the inquiry. DBC is hoping for a three-month adjournment, during which they would meet with the Boxmoor Trust to discuss proposals for the developers to provide an alternative green space. If this was achieved, DBC would then rescind all objections to the Rectory Farm plans.

The chair of KLDRA Gary Ansell said: “This is the council that has made a virtue of its green credentials and then withdrew this site from their draft Local Plan.”

DBC has been contacted for comment.
