Little Hadham Parish Council
The Parish Council has objected to proposals that could make the site of the former Hadham Water bottling plant a major industrial and trading estate. At a special meeting of the parish council’s planning committee (it does not normally sit in January), objections were raised to an application for a change of use of agricultural buildings at Church End Farm to enable them to be used for other commercial purposes.

Location and poor access on to the A120 made it an unsuitable location for an industrial estate, said councillors. In a letter to the planning department of East Herts Council (EHC), they noted that several buildings had been erected to replace obsolete farm buildings and permission had been granted for an extension of the bottling plant before Hadham Water ceased trading.

The parish council was concerned at the number of large vehicles using Church End Lane and noted that a haulage company had applied for permission to operate from the site. The benefits of a future bypass could be negated by increased traffic using Church End Farm. It was concerned that piecemeal development could result in a major industrial site and called on EHC to produce a planning brief before any further permissions were granted.

This and other local issues will be on the agenda of the next meeting of the parish council, Tuesday 5 February, 8pm in the village hall.
