End of the road for Marchmont Fields

PERA residents protest against against the development of Marchmont Fields last yearDacorum Council has signed the death warrant for Marchmont Fields. The land adjoining Grovehill to halfway down Link Road has been ‘released’ from the Green belt and a massive housing programme will begin shortly. Despite representations from PERA (pictured here) and other organisations the council has taken the easy option of digging up acres of green space to fulfil part of the Government’s housing programme. Some 350 houses and a traveller site will be built on the land where the weekly car boot sale currently takes place.
