SIGNATURES NEEDED: Croxley residents launch petition to protect village green spaces

 Published on: 7th February 2021   |   By: Holly Bullen   |   Category: Uncategorized

Residents have created a petition to protect their precious green spaces in Croxley, as developments continue to cloud the village.

This petition addressed to Three Rivers District Council (TRDC) and parliament, comes after signs were put up around the village urging residents to raise their objections to developments with TRDC.

Naz Panju decided to start the petition after watching the continuing debates over village development concerns.

She said: “A lot of the residents are very unhappy about more and more of the Green belt and conservation areas in our area being built on. Many are worried about the impact on resources in the town, the impact on village life with more development and that brown fields are not being prioritised in the area instead.”

The main concern for residents is the potential development at Killingdown Farm which could see 160 dwellings built on Green Belt Land.

One Little Green Lane resident Grant Murray is concerned about the impact the potential development could have on the lane and the conversation area.

He said: “The single-track road will have to be made wider at the Green and diverted into the new estate.

“Little Green Lane has been used for centuries for access to the pathways and fields and especially during these times the amount of local people walking has been amazing.

“If this development were to go ahead in its current form this would surely end and would be a great loss to our village life.”

TRDC and Hill the applicants have been contacted for comment.
