If you live locally you are perhaps already aware of this story.
In short our friends from Hatfield Heath are fighting to save the local old POW Camp from demolition. A planning application has been submitted which would see this historic site demolished to make place for 25 luxury homes. As we are a local history society you would somehow expect us to join the protest against this suggested development and you are right.
Yes, the site may currently not be in a very good state and yes this area needs housing. But the camp can be restored made into a museum for instance and become even more of an asset to the local community. As for housing, we need affordable housing, not multi room mansions.
We are a local history society our mission is to research, collect, record and preserve. Protecting our heritage should be a duty for all we think and needs to come before building luxury homes. So please visit the History not Houses facebook page, join the group and if you are a Hatfield Heath local join your local history society.
