September is nearly upon us, although it may already be here if you read this article in September. I hope you have been able to get away and enjoy time with your family members, children and grandchildren or have just stayed at home and enjoyed what is on offer locally.

The coming months will be very busy as we will be working closely with our Town Councillors, District Councillors and County Councillor, along with other interested parties, to deal with the planning applications that have recently been received or are in the pipeline. The total number of dwellings proposed, if all applications are approved or allowed at appeal will be in the order of 618 in addition to the already approved 58 at Buntingford North. Rest assured that the BCS will strive to get the best for the town and its residents, but effectively it is EHDC Planning that is the body that has the ultimate say and are the decision makers. It should also be borne in mind that even if an application is refused by EHDC, the applicant can appeal against the decision, and it will then be dealt with by a government appointed Planning Inspector who may well overturn any decision by EHDC Planning. We will keep you updated on progress.

On a brighter note, we have the Classic Car show on the 2nd September, always a great event that attracts people from all over.

Those of you that use London Road to exit the town may have noticed that the Planter that was located by the entrance to the Cougars Field has been moved to the southern side of the entrance to the BP garage, it will be planted up in late September early October.

Back in mid-July the Executive Committee had a farewell and thank you lunch with Christine Noble, ex-Journal Editor. At the time of writing, Christine still awaits a moving date and we will miss her, but change is inevitable and my thanks go to Anne Wright our new Journal Editor for the great job producing the July/August copy.

Just a reminder, we have a facebook page at www.facebook.com/buntingfordcivicsociety.

The Buntingford Journal also has a website at www.buntingfordjournal.uk.
