Welcome

The Friends of the Forster Country have one aim:

"TO PRESERVE FOR ALL TIME THE OPEN GREEN SPACE TO THE NORTH OF STEVENAGE KNOWN AS THE FORSTER COUNTRY."

FUTURE HOUSING DEVELOPMENT
Once again there have been no significant formal announcements since our last issue by either Stevenage Borough Council (SBC) or North Herts District Council (NHDC) relating to future housing development. However, your Committee believes that once the next consultation stage is presented to the public there will be very limited time to respond. Bearing this in mind we are taking steps to prepare what we can in advance. To this end we have established a small working party which is gathering information from our own archive material. This includes many factors which we believe can be presented in support of maintaining the status quo for Forster Country. In addition we are reviewing the history and current general status of the Green Belt of which Forster Country forms part and which is potentially threatened.

New Patron

We are delighted that Barbara Follett has agreed to become a patron of The Friends of the Forster Country. She took a keen interest in our cause throughout her time as our constituency MP (1997-2010), meeting with our Founders on several occasions and attending our events. She is a paid-up Friend and only last year opened our waymarked footpath. (See Newsletter September 2013)  Her support now will be invaluable. Thank you, Barbara
