Ben Carden is being threatened with eviction from his private 2.5 acre plot of land. Since buying this land, he has improved the visual appearance by landscaping and creating a wildlife haven; the land was previously a fly tip area. He runs his business Cardens Gardens from this dwelling, creating jobs for up to 10 people.
Ben has 2 children and if he is evicted he will need to be re-homed by the Council taking up limited housing accommodation. His 2 boys may be restricted to living in a flat instead of growing up in space and fresh air. He will also lose his business and may have to rely on social security through no fault of his own and this will include his employees. Ben has also made a bund, to lesson the noise pollution for his neighbours and himself, this also screens the A1(M). Ben is living in a mobile home, at the present time he cannot afford to get onto the housing market.
Ben was born and raised in Welwyn Garden City; after 3 generations should Ben and his sons have the right to remain in Welwyn Garden City vesinity and his neighbours have the right not to see the A1(M)?
We, the undersigned, agree:
- That Ben Carden and his sons have the right to live on their property.
- His employees have the right to work.
- The local residents have the right not to see the A1(M).
Thank you for your support.
