As we always knew they would, Helioslough are back with a repeated application to build their monster freight terminal. It's a kick in the teeth for local people. St Albans Council still needs to see the detail of the application to check that it fits the rules. If it really is unchanged from the previous application then I hope the council will simply refuse to consider it under the two-year rule where developers cannot simply repeat previous applications ad nauseam at huge expense to the council taxpayer when they have already been rejected. We know there are better alternative sites such as Sundon by Luton - see my previous post.
We all must continue to stand together against this monstrous proposal. That means Residents Associations, STRiFE, all the different pressure and interest groups, and all the political parties. I go on being surprised that Anne Main continues to put out leaflets and statements implying that it is her and STRiFE alone against Helioslough with never a mention of other political parties. So for the record I am happy to state that this issue transcends petty party politics and I and my LibDem councillor colleagues will be proud to work alongside Mrs Main and the other parties. Everyone in the city and district has to hang together on this one if we are to give Helioslough the bloody nose they deserve.
