West Hemel Action Group opposes the LA3 proposal for up to 900 new homes. It objects that:

is a main priority of the Access & Movement Strategy. Further afield, the volume of new traffic to be created will necessitate improvements to junctions at Long Chaulden with Northridge Way and Boxted Road, Warners End Road with Northridge Way and with Leighton Buzzard Road. About 32ha will be available for housing. The northern end of the site is proposed to look like an extension to Fields End, while the southern must reflect the rural character of Pouchen End.

The current timetable envisages new homes being completed on the site from 2021 and at a rate of 100-120 a year through to 2031. It may begin earlier, but the planning process will probably get under way in 2016.
