WARNING

DO YOU WANT WOODS FILLED WITH LANDFILL AND TURNED TOCAR PARK?

Aldenham Parish Council plan to "infill" Wellhouse Dell, a number of small wooded valleys, with "inert landfill" and use it "to extend the car park" at King George V playing fields.

These 150 year old woods benefit us all 365 days a year. The car park is under-used. The occasional extra parking desired (APC refer to "Sunday mornings") could be met more proportionately and at little or no costby 1. overflow in Salters Field via the existing track to that field from the present car park 2. overflow in Salters Field via the alternative access road at the south end of the field 3. the station car park: 294 spaces, almost empty at weekends 4. the large car park behind the shops.

Wellhouse Dell dates back to 1860. Due to the loss of woods, Woodland Trust promote the planting of new trees. Yet APC plan to destroy woodland we already have, which has taken decades to grow. The result: loss of green belt, habitat for birds and other wildlife, wild flowers (good for bees), visual amenity, oxygen-making/CO2-absorbing trees and areas to drain water run-off. The Dell shelters from cold and shades the heat. It shields sports ground users and walkers from the noise and pollution of the main road.

The Dell neednot be touched to make a new access. There is anexisting access road, directly off the main road, at the south end of the adjacent field, well away from the woods. The shortest link from that road to the existing car park(up the east side of Salters Field) would not touch the woods

KEEP OUR TREES.

KEEP RADLETT GREEN AND LEAFY

    This is an important natural resource, especially for local children.

    please leave the woodland at Wellhouse Dell alone! Do not build a car park or anything else on it, i am sure you can be more creative with ideas for car parking if its really needed.
