A planning application to transform land next to Bovingdon’s Bobsleigh Hotel into a traveller site has been ignored and travellers have moved in to the site this weekend.
Michael Cash submitted plans to Dacorum Borough Council’s development control committee in December for eight traveller families to set up on green fields next to Hempstead Road and was rejected.
Now what? No planning is in place the appeal is in 10 days time on January 24th. Have your say.

Hertfordshire is the best place to raise a family in the UK, while East and North Ayrshire are the worst, according to a survey.
Good pay and weather, top GCSE grades, fast broadband and access to GP surgeries helped put Hertfordshire at the top of an index of 138 local authorities based on 33 aspects important to family life.
Hertfordshire boasts the third highest employment rate in England with 81 per cent of residents aged 16 to 64 in work and an average annual salary of £33,435, while 64 per cent of pupils achieve five or more A* to C grades at GCSE.
East and North Ayrshire suffered the poorest ranking owing to higher crime, lower exam results and lower pay, according to the uSwitch Better Family Life Index.
Susan Jarman 316 bus from Hemel Hempstead to Chesham
Anna Knight Oh boy do I remember this one! The day we moved into Bovingdon from Chesham, I had to go to school as per normal, but catch the bus back to Hempstead Road. I didn’t get off the bus and went all the way to Hemel Bus station where my mum had phoned through to find out where I was. When I was eventually dropped off on the return journey, the driver let me keep my 3d.
