Incinerator Rejected at New Barnfield

Stacks Image 534
The Secretary of State at the Department for Communities and Local Government (DCLG) has endorsed the Planning Inspector’s decision to reject Veolia and Hertfordshire County Council’s planning application to build a massive incinerator at New Barnfield in South Hatfield. This is due recognition and reward to all the hard work put in by local residents (including the OHCF) who opposed the proposed incinerator – see the OHCF’s submission to the recent planning appeal and the review of HCC’s waste management strategy Well done all.

Landscaping Plans for Salisbury Square

The final landscaping plans for Salisbury Square were presented by Gascoyne Cecil and the Residents Association at a public consultation held at York House on Friday 27 June.

Comments from those attending the exhibition were positive and many were happy to see that their feedback on the landscaping proposals presented at previous consulations had been taken into consideration. Many felt that the final plans reflected what the community had hoped to see and are looking forward to having a much improved square.

Hatfield Station Improvements

Stacks Image 690
First Capital Connect, Network Rail and Hertfordshire County Council have begun work on the ambitious project to redevelop the entire station. On the 14th October work started on the creation of a new multi-storey car park. Its design reflects the vernacular of the surrounding building and will hold 378 cars whereas the existing northern and southern car parks accommodate a total of just 198. Several charging points for electrical vehicles will also be incorporated into the new car park. The building will incorporate traditional brick arches and a mesh cladding which reflects the ornamental ironwork on the gates of neighbouring Hatfield House.
