HOW WILL the date November 29, 2006 go down in the history of Uttlesford?
Will awareness of integrated, "joined-up" government influence planning in Uttlesford?
Will all relevant government policies and all current thinking on economic, health and environmental welfare come into the equation when councillors exercise their judgment to weigh officer "recommendation" in balance with "material considerations"?

On Sunday morning I walked in Hatfield Forest. More than 50 years ago my husband, as a child, also walked in Hatfield Forest.
Soon I shall be walking through the forest with another grandchild.

Will they climb exhausted stumps of ancient trees, watch the birds by the
lake, learn to ride a bicycle in safety?
In the end, will common sense prevail?
