    It would remove a beautiful part of the town

    Whittington Way is a joy to drive along, whether in spring, summer or winter. The road and surrounding fields are just beautiful if we take the time to look and enjoy. The banks are covered in daffodils and cowslips in spring and the sun streams through leafy trees in the summer. Sunsets are amazing whatever the season. Winter offers fields in mist and sparkling frosty hedges. Fact. Walks in the countryside on the doorstep. The history of Thorley also needs to be considered. We need to preserve places like this, not create yet another concrete jungle. The houses won't be big enough to actually live in anyway.

    Adding hundreds of new homes will lead to chaos in Whittington Way, Friedberg Avenue, Vilies sur Marne Avenue, London Road and the bypass too. During School rush hour it's already difficult to come out of and back into Pynchbek. It will cause endless problems to us residents in Thorley Park and by causing higher traffic volumes for othe Bishop's Stortford residents along London Road towards the town and it's already a major traffic problem trying to get through Sawbridgeworth in the morning.

    I find it hard to believe that EHDC can contemplate destroying Green Belt land. The roads around the proposed Whittington Way development are barely adequate now. Adding hundreds of ne homes will lead to chaos in Friedberg Avenue, Vilies sur Marne Avenue, London Road and probably the bypass too. It will cause misery to residents in Thorley Park and by causing higher traffic volumes Bishop's Stortford residents along the London Road towards the town, in Thorley Wash and others towards Sawbridgeworth too. One questions whether those responsible for planning this have ever actually visited the area and spent time observing it. I think not. Please reconsider.
