   Corona Virua - keeping in touch, "What's app" Update    16 March, 2020

Dear Residents of Gilston, 

 

🦠 Corona Virus - keeping in touch, 

“What’s app” Update.

 

Because of the recent global heath situation that we all find ourselves in, It would be great if we could all become instantly, more aware of what is happening around us, and look out for each other, if anyone needs help.

 

Some of you are aware that we have a local Neighbourhood / Community group,  called “Gilston Neighbours” - a WhatsApp instant messaging app that goes on your mobile phone.

It works for letting us know if we see anything that may look suspicious, but it can also help if anyone becomes isolated within our community. We would like to get as many local people as possible to join - the more eyes and ears, the better!

 

For those not familiar with this app - it requires a mobile phone, and for you to download the “WhatsApp” onto your mobile device. 

It is an instant messaging app, where you can send an instant message & Photos to multiple members with just one click.

 

When a member of the group wishes to post something of interest - it will go out instantly to all other members.

 

For example - 

 

Hi all, be aware - “Two men knocking on doors in Gilston Lane, asked if they could check our water supply - I asked for ID and they drove off!?....”

Or perhaps.....

“Just to let you all know a tree has blown down blocking the road next to the Post box.....” 

 

If you and other members of your household are interested in knowing what is going on in your community, as it happens, please e mail me your name, & mobile number, I will add you to the group.

It doesn’t have to be crime related, any info that may be of interest, is also welcome.

Let’s all try and help each other, and support any vulnerable neighbours that may need assistance. 

 

Kind regards

 

Neale Biscoe

   YOUR RESPONSE TO THE GILSTON AREA PLANNING APPLICATIONS    28 July, 2019

Your response to the Gilston Area Planning Applications

Please, before you go on holiday ………

The Neighbourhood Plan Group is working hard to review and make general representations on the three planning applications made by Places for People. We will publish this shortly and would welcome any endorsements of our viewpoints by you as residents and or businesses.

It is important that, if you have any concerns over the potential impacts of these proposals on your home, access and local facilities that you record these concerns directly with East Herts Council, before 9th August (we know that some of the consultation period is in the peak holiday season and have made the point that running a consultation exercise over late July early August is unhelpful to residents). Now however is the time to make sure your views are known to our Council before they determine the applications.

In essence the applications cover:

The Outline application (quote planning reference number 3/19/1045/OUT)

Seeks to secure the basic agreements for 6 out of the 7 villages planned to be built North of the Stort Valley and the A414 Gilston and comprises up to 8,500 residential homes and facilities. If you live near one of these proposed villages then they, their construction and associated infrastructure may affect your home and or business. The development will be constructed over the next 20 to 30 years.

The Eastern Crossing, (quote planning application reference number 3/19/1051/FUL)

Aims to secure a detailed consent to reroute the A414 from Harlow right through the middle of Pye Corner and Terlings Park into Harlow with a new bridge over the River Stort. It makes Pye Corner a cul-de-sac.

Central Stort Crossing (quote planning application reference number 3/19/1046/FUL)

Widens the existing access and road/rail bridge into Harlow from the Eastwick roundabout and proposes a high-level bridge for pedestrians and cyclists.

Things to possibly think about in any response you make:

  • Have you been adequate consulted on the direct impact of these proposals on your home or business?
  • Are the new facilities proposed what you would expect?
  • Will the building works impact on your home or enjoyment of the local countryside?
  • Will the changes to access work for you?

Responses can be made via https://publicaccess.eastherts.gov.uk/ or by letter to East Herts Council Planning Department, Wallfields, Pegs Lane, Hertford SG13 8EQ using the above references.

Full details of these applications can be found at https://publicaccess.eastherts.gov.uk/ using the above references and are available in printed form at East Herts Council Planning Department, Wallfields, Pegs Lane, Hertford SG13 8EQ.
