Hertsmere Borough Council have released a public consultation document covering a number of potential sites for housing and employment. One of the sites 'H2' is a proposed 'garden village' at Tyttenhanger covering a large area either side of Coursers Road and incorporating Tyttenhanger Farm and New Plantation Wood.

The full plan can be accessed at Local Plan Hertsmere by downloading the pdf document 'final version of our sites document'. Page 10 shows a map highlighting the various sites proposed for development including 'H2' at Tyttenhanger which is explained in more detail on pages 146-149. This development would undoubtedly impact negatively on the wildlife at Tyttenhanger, including, of course, the local Tree Sparrow population which is the last remaining colony in Hertfordshire and one of the last in the whole of the south east of England.

The proposals are open for public consultation until midnight on 20 December 2018. To comment on the proposals you can post them online by creating a log in at Consultation Portal where others can view your comments and you can also view comments by others, or you can email your comments directly to .

Local birders have opened a new twitter account @SaveTyttGP #savetyttenhanger where you can view the latest news and developments.
