Bedmond Lane Field – Community Asset Review Hearing
Friday 26th September 10.00am St Albans District Council Offices
Public Meeting – Please come and show your support


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
http://planning.stalbans.gov.uk/Planning/StreamDocPage/obj.pdf?DocNo=6167640&PageNo=1&content=obj.pdf

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.

The Committee’s current plan remains as agreed to continue to support the listing by St Albans District Council of the site as an Asset of Community Value. As you know Banner Homes have appealed against Bedmond Lane Meadow remaining on the Council’s list of Community Assets. This public hearing is due to take place at 10am on Friday the 26th September at St Albans District Council Offices.

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.
