Will the planners not be satisfied until there are no open green spaces left within the London Commuter area? Once fields are concreted over, they are never returned to agricultural land. People need space to live in and enjoy as well as homes and industrial/commercial sites. I can see how convenient it is for Luton councillors to get their circular by-pass completed at Prologis' expense but what about the quality of life to be lived by those people who have chosen to escape town living by moving into North Herts? Where is the advantage of all this building and development to Hertfordshire? Surely, we who live in North Herts are already 'doing our bit' for the local economy by living close to Luton's airport? Must we lose our countryside views and walks as well? There is plenty of land within the industrial areas of Luton that can be developed and plenty of green fields west of Luton and east of the M1 that can be usefully developed but of course, that will not get Luton Council its missing chunk of free circular by-pass! Hands off Hertfordshire - resolve your own traffic issues!
