Oliver recently visited Shenley Hill, in Radlett.
Oliver attended the site, alongside Cllr Lucy Selby, where developers propose to erect 195 houses on Green Belt land.
Despite Hertsmere Borough Council’s decision last year to shelve the Local Plan, planning applications on sites included in the draft plan are still being submitted, and in this case, in Radlett.
Oliver said: ‘A number of residents have been in touch to express their concerns with the proposed Shenley Hill development.
We must protect our green open spaces that make our area so special, and I remain firm that we should not be building on green belt land, except in exceptional circumstances. I do not believe there are exceptional circumstances and have therefore written to Hertsmere Borough Council to highlight this.
As planning matters are solely a matter for the Local Authority, I have also urged residents to engage with the council and to make their views known.'
