HAVE A VOICE

Buntingford Civic Society gives a very warm welcome to Aliya Chowney the talented new editor of the Journal.

The Journal is a community publication with editorial independence of the Society and therein lies its strength and contribution to Buntingford and surrounding villages.

To keep up with local and national Civic Trust issues visit www.buntingfordcivic.org.uk which has been developed as a key resource by Andy Sinclair our webmaster. Through the links you can follow the challenge by Hertfordshire County Council to the East of England Plan. The demanded housing volume, without financial provision for infrastructure, is untenable and claims that developers will meet the requirements through 'planning gains' is pie in the sky.

Thanks are due to Cllr. Jon Ling who recently gave a robust presentation to the Joint Members Panel and Hertfordshire Highways officers. The case was made for significant investment in the fabric of Buntingford.

As Chairman of the Town Council's Traffic Advisory Group ( a relationship inadvertently unacknowledged in the July/August edition ) Jon took the lead in the Town's petition and follow-up survey which readily exceeded 300 supportive signatures. A level of awareness has been achieved that Buntingford residents are increasingly frustrated by the apparent disinterest in our Town exhibited by some elected representatives and officers.

Congratulations to the Carnival team - it was an excellent event with a large turnout in spite of the weather.

Hope you are pleased with the new boundary signs which are more in keeping with the Town's status. This is a good example of the Civic Society and Town Council working together to get a result. Terry Noble did the cross county design research, Bob and Joyce Jackson linked-up with the manufacturer and the order placed from Manor House having gained approval from the various authorities.

Derek K Cooper, Chairman.
