Response to the Outline and Detailed Planning Applications for the development at Gilston

The Parish Council, as part of the joint Hunsdon, Eastwick and Gilston Neighbourhood Plan Group, encourages residents to respond to the current Planning Applications relating to The Gilston Area and has produced an information sheet to assist in you in doing so.
The Parish Council has itself responded in the following terns
"The Parish Council, as a sponsor of the joint Hunsdon with Eastwick and Gilston Neighbourhood Plan Group, endorses the responses produced by the Group and accordingly appends them as part of its submission, together with a covering letter from Hunsdon Parish Council.
There are several key issues in the response that the Parish Council would like to underscore and amplify as part of its objections, and are outlined in the letter. These have emerged from discussions within the council and residents and following public consultations organised by The Hunsdon Area Neighbourhood Plan Group. We trust that all concerns will be clarified and refined through engagement by both the applicants and the East Herts Council with our joint Neighbourhood Plan Group over the coming weeks."

Congratulation to Hunsdon JMI - an outstanding school

Briggens Estate identified as a 'preferred area' for quarrying sand and gravel

The Briggens Estste is the remaining Green Belt land between The Gilston Area (Harlow North) and Stanstead Abbotts to the south west of Hunsdon Parish, although a small section falls within the parish. It has been identified in the draft Hertfordshire County Minerals Local Plan 2016 - 2031 as a 'preferred area' for a large sand and gravel quarry. Should the site be allocated, Tarmac intends to submit a planning application at the earliest opportunity and consides that extraction could begin in 2022.

Herts County Council is currently undertaking a public consultation on the draft Plan, and Hunsdon Parish Council is joining with Stanstead Abbotts Parish Council in making a formal and comprehensive response to the consultation but also in encouraging all residents to respond. To this effect it supports the 'Say NO to the Quarry' campaign and would encourage residents to read and respond to the information being promoted by that group and in particular to use the proforma response to the public consultation. You can either complete and send in the paper response, or complete an online response through the group's website here.
