The hedge is planned to run from North Road, along the north side of the proposed houses to the Bygrave Road and railway.

Looks like Salisbury Road may be extended into the new houses.

One of the proposed main routes for the traffic to and from the new estates on the north side of the railway lines.

Also there may be a school and playing fields.
There is a new wood marked on the map, but this may not go ahead.

Not sure if the previously unmentioned Site 5 is houses or a new industrial area.
This stretches up Royston Road to the bypass roundabout.

Site 4 also seems to have been extended.

Lets hope our campaign can  stop at least some of this development.

Thanks to Albert for getting this information.

    Of course the planning of so many houses in Baldock is disproportionate in comparison with the rest of the county and it would effectively make Baldock into another Hertfordshire garden city via the back door. I would like to point out the obvious about the lack of roadway infrastructure which has been omitted and if any new roads are to be added in the future there would also be a loss of land in and around these developments. Given any new roads would also be a gateway for further add ons to Baldock given that the infrastructure would already be there. Another point is the distinct lack of Secondary school for the proposed ‘new’ primary schools to feed into, as it is the aging Knights Templar school is as big as it can be in its existing location.

    What are you all going to say when all your children move away because there is no homes for them to buy in Baldock? When is the last time you went for a drink in one of the many pubs? If you have been for a drink you would have noticed they are half empty. I think 300 or so new homes are more than needed and will be good for the town.

    After the regeneration of Baldock which,I believe,was largely welcomed,it would be a travesty to more or less double the population of the town.The station would be unable to cope and the schools,already overcrowded,would not be able to accommodate the extra pupils.At the moment the Knights Templar School cannot take in some children who live in Baldock!Baldock already has Clothall Common which is fine but enough is enough,surely!

    I am still confused as to who sets the number of houses needed – The Govenment, Herts County Council, or North Herts District Council.
    The plans from NHDC were used in the March consultations.
    Then we obtained the slightly more detailed plans from HCC.
    It would be interesting to find out which plan came first, and who is setting the number of houses required.

  5. Christine says:

    These plans seem different from those proposed at the March4th meeting so what is going on? Did we miss something or have things changed since the deadline?

  6. Albert says:

    I understand these draft plans have been produced by Herts County Council, at the request of NHDC. The plans have only just been sent to NHDC, who are supposed to make them available on the NHDC website.
    Hopefully NHDC will take the results of the current consultation and questionaires into account, and modify the final plans.
