Lockdown Lives and Stansted Airport

Published: 11 May 20

The substantial reduction in Stansted Airport’s operations during the Covid-19 lockdown has brought many changes to our community. We would like to capture details of whether and how these changes may have affected your quality of life. We are particularly interested to hear from those across Essex, Hertfordshire, Cambridgeshire and Suffolk, but would also like to hear from you if you are based further afield but within Stansted’s catchment. We are therefore inviting you to email Stop Stansted Expansion at info@stopstanstedexpansion.com with your experiences and perceptions with a view to capturing them for posterity and for potential use in the future. Your email can be as long or as short as you wish, but please identify your lockdown location with the first part of your postcode so that we can map the responses we receive. If you wish your contribution to remain anonymous, please make this clear in your email. Please send your email to info@stopstanstedexpansion.com and mark the subject ‘Lockdown Lives and Stansted Airport’. Read More...

Bovingdon Market update

Published: 18 Dec 19

The partner agencies including Dacorum Borough Council, Herts Highways, the Police and the Parish Council have continued to work together, to encourage the operators of the market to implement additional measures in order to deal with the flow of traffic off the Chesham Road and into the site. Following various meetings, Dacorum Borough Council has issued the market operators with a Temporary Stop Notice This has IMMEDIATE effect and requires them to cease the use of the Molyneaux Avenue access/egress for customers. Breaching this could attract an unlimited fine – subject to a successful prosecution. Additionally, a Community Protection Notice (CPN) has been issued in relation to their traffic management and the littering. The CPN requires the operators to submit a detailed traffic management plan which will detail a number of things, including; information of site capacity; enforceable traffic and parking management plan; contingency plan for the site when capacity is reached. Penalties for not complying with the requirements set out in the CPN is that a person or body may be prosecuted. If you are prosecuted and convicted the maximum penalty is a fine not exceeding level 4 on the standard scale (currently ₤2,500), in the case of an individual and an unlimited fine (previously set at £20,000), in the case of a body. Following this coming weekend, the partner agencies will look at the evidence to consider further steps if appropriate – therefore, it would be very helpful if you could provide any photographic evidence you believe would support: a) a breach of the Temporary Stop Notice, b) a breach of the CPN, c) the notion that the market operator has not managed to alleviate the traffic problems or d) that the littering problem persists. This information should be sent to Bovingdon Parish Council at office@bovingdonparishcouncil.gov.uk and / or to Gary Cullum at gc@cullumpublishing.co.uk Read More...
