The latest campaigns to change - or not - our town and the wider environment in which we live include Simons' proposals for Churchgate, Hammersmatch's and the possible expansion of Luton Airport.
Not to mention development at Blueharts and possibly at Top Field, the home of Hitchin Football Club.
Thankfully, we have campaigning groups such as The Hitchin Forum as well as The Comet and The Advertiser, who all aim to keep us informed.
