Planning Application for Agricultural Lagoon in Dane End

A planning application has been made for a 10,000 cubic metres agricultural lagoon at Home Farm, Dane End, near to the junction of lanes to Whempstead and Green End.

The lagoon would be used to store biofertiliser, which will be used on surrounding land.

Some residents are concerned about the impact on lanes around the site which will be used by tankers to deliver the biofertiliser to the lagoon, and the use of other vehicles to then distibute the biofertilser to fields.

Full details of the application can be found on the East Herts website at
East Herts Planning
and using the Planning Reference of 3/15/1080/FUL

Clicking on the tab 'Documents' will allow you to download any relevant documents.

A petition against the application is available for signing in Dane end Village Shop, and there is a Facebook page.
