A BID to market plots of land in Radlett as suitable for housing has led Hertsmere Borough Council to issue a warning to potential buyers.

Marketing information including leaflets have been encouraging people to buy premium plots of Green Belt land off Cobden Hill without warning potential purchasers that they are highly unlikely to get planning permission.

Council planners are urging investors to speak to them before buying plots of land for potential housing developments because planning approvals are not a given.

Cllr Hannah David, Hertsmere council's portfolio holder for planning, said that people needed to be on their guard.

"We want to try and ensure that people are not enticed by offers that are too good to be true. We have strict controls over the developments we allow within the borough and planning permission would not generally be approved for building on green belt land," she said.
