Hatfield Heath Parish Appraisal 2015

Thanks to everybody who took the time to respond to the questionnaire. Responses were received from most
postcodes in the Parish and the durations that respondents have lived in the Parish range from 2 weeks to 77 years,
evenly spread with an average of 23 years. So we have a representative input to the appraisal. All responses will be
considered in constructing the Parish Plan and this summary captures the main points for your information.

Personal safety

Almost half of the responses state feeling unsafe in some areas. Most of those relate to road safety with the vast
majority expressing concern over cars mounting the pavement outside the Stag, the remainder being concerned over
inconsiderate parking at school pick-up time and lack of footpaths along some roads used by pedestrians. The rest cite
lack of street lighting (fear of crime) as the cause.

responses for what

people consider important, together with the community spirit, shops, cricket, churches, pubs and the Doctors’ surgery.

Footpaths, play areas, the Festival, fairs, school and wildlife pond were also noted.

The primary feature that residents wanted to see changed concerned the traffic passing through the village, its speed

and volume. A reduction in speed limits through and around the village, better traffic flow at peak times by reviewing

junctions and road configuration and the introduction of traffic calming measures were some of the suggestions made.

A significant number commented on the environment and the appearance of the village and the largest number of these
concerned the shop, restaurant and takeaway signs and billboards, which were not felt to be in keeping with the village
scene. Other issues included the amount of litter, the untidiness of hedges, footpaths and roadside verges, the state of
the car park, uncleaned roads, the condition of road furniture, the number of road signs, the fact that cottages have been
converted into takeaways and many noted the broken kerbstones in Broomfields.
Most of the other comments reinforced responses to the questions in other sections particularly parking and housing.
Other comments that were made concerned the travellers, aircraft noise, potholes, broadband speed and the issue of the
educational catchment for the village cohort.

Airport Expansion

Last year Stansted Airport handled 143,468 commercial flights and it has planning
permission to handle 264,000 commercial flights per year. If Stansted were to reach its

Most responses indicated that current dwellings meet their occupants' needs. Where this isn’t the case the most
common cause is lack of suitable dwellings to purchase. An interesting insight is that it is difficult to downsize
privately due to new developments, and extensions to existing smaller properties, creating a predominance of large
houses in the parish

Narrative comments generally reflected the need for an increase in the availability of smaller dwellings, not only
affordable starter homes but also homes to allow residents to downsize without leaving the village.

Business

A small response was received from local businesses which reinforced the needs for improved parking, faster
broadband and better mobile ‘phone coverage.

Is there any aspect of village life you feel strongly about that has not been covered

above?

There were many responses to this last question, several emphasising issues covered in other parts of the surveys. The
largest subject response was from people complimenting the village atmosphere and pleas not to allow it to change,
again reinforcing the earlier section on environment. The biggest issue related to the frequent illegal camping by
travellers on the village green. Litter and speeding followed that as major issues. Lack of police presence, potholes,
dog fouling and street lighting were also raised as issues. There were several other individual issues covering a broad
spectrum which will be given consideration.

MEMORIALS The Vicar
Writes

J. Day & Son Dear Hatfield Heath Residents,
The weeks after Easter are always a good time to look
Station Road, Bishop’s Stortford forward to the summer to come. Recently it seems we
have been waiting through rain and shine (although
Bishop’s Stortford 01279 654 555 sometimes it seems through more of the former!)
Edmonton 0208 807 3712 In church we use this time to reflect on the growth of
the Early Church and the blessings that God brings to
www.jdayandson.co.uk the world. It is right to say that the Church should be a
blessing to our entire world and every community in it.
That’s a difficult task of course! Sometimes it works
well and sometimes it doesn’t quite reach the mark. Our
churches in Hatfield Heath try hard to make a difference
for the good in our village.
The Bible talks about the Early Church being a place
where no one was in want, where the rich shared with
the poor and where everyone was included. It also
speaks of a community that was happy in itself, full of
joy, ‘praising God and enjoying the favour of all the
people’. I do hope that more people in Hatfield Heath
would find their local church to be like this today. Why
not come and discover it!
The marks of a good church (togetherness, inclusion,
happy activity) are also the marks of a good community.
There is much to be proud about in our village and we
should celebrate that. Of course a community is only the
sum of the individual people who get involved. Many of
us will be involved in the Heath Festival in June - it’s a
really great event to get to know people and highlight
what is best about village life. We can be involved more
throughout the year too of course. Let’s all make
Hatfield Heath a great place come rain or shine.
Best wishes,
Rev Stewart Gibbs
