Formation of BBB Action Group

Members of the Bourne End Village Association have joined forces with Bovingdon Action Group and Box Lane residents to fight the Little Hay Golf Course application.  Residents on all sides of the golf course are united in their opposition to the proposed landfill and they have named themselves the BBB Action Group.  They have already put in Freedom of Information requests to both Dacorum BC and Herts CC in order to obtain information that has not previously been in the public domain about the landfill planning application.   

Little Hay Planning Application

This is more information from the latest amendment to the Little Hay Planning Application.  The drawings show the extent of the road widening that Woodlands propose at the bottom of Upper Bourne End Lane.  As you can see, this would involve the removal of virtually all the verge, which would make using the lane incredibly dangerous for pedestrians and horse riders, as there would be nowhere to get off the carriageway and away from vehicles.

We want to prevent them from dumping landfill on the golf course which is Green Belt land and an area of natural beauty.  If it goes ahea…
