Over 1,200 sign petition to protect Little Green Lane
Over 1,200 residents have so far signed a petition calling for Little Green Lane in Croxley to be protected by having the unpaved part of the road closed to motorised traffic.
Local campaigners say this will help stop the fly-tipping that occurs there and preserve the rural nature of the road and surrounding area for future generations.
Campaign organiser Liberal Democrat Croxley Cllr Dominic Sokalski said, "We promised during the election to work hard to protect Little Green Lane. I am delighted the petition has now surpassed a thousand signatures and it will have to be considered by Herts County Council at its next meeting on October 19th. We hope the county council will agree our request."
Fellow Lib Dem Croxley Cllr Margaret Hofman said, "We would like to a say a big thank you to all the residents who signed our petition to get us well over the needed thousand signatures to secure debate at Herts County Hall. The reaction on the doorstep was very positive. Almost everyone we asked, without exception, could see closing the unpaved part of the road to traffic would enhance and protect our environment and green space."
