Thank you to the nearly 50 residents who came to support the VRA at the hearing into Banner Homes’ appeal against Bedmond Lane Field being registered as a community asset. We know that many more of you would have been there if you could. The result of the review is currently planned to be announced by the Council on Friday 10 October.


Update on Bedmond Lane Field – September 2014

As many of our members are aware the planning application by Banner Homes Ltd to use the land for horses has been rejected

They may appeal against this decision and have in the meantime commenced fencing off areas of Bedmond Lane Meadow. Thank you to all residents who informed us of such activity. We do not believe there is anything we can currently do to stop Banner Homes from erecting fencing. All that is required of them is that it is within permitted development guidelines. The Council’s planning enforcement officer has been made aware of our concerns.

Please be assured the Committee are using all the resources at our disposal to make ongoing decisions we believe to be in the best interest of our local community.

Please continue to contact us with your comments via our enquiries@verulamra.org.uk email address. We may not be able to respond individually to all your comments but please be assured we do read them all.
