Lib Dems welcome decision in Hunston Properties case

Local Liberal Democrats have welcomed the fact that the Secretary of State has rejected an appeal by Hunston Properties Ltd in relation to proposed major developments at Sewell Park, to the rear of Harpenden Road. The applications were turned down by the district council and were also the subject of a court decision of national significance to green belt policy.

Lib Dem Planning spokesperson Dave Yates said:‘We’re pleased with the outcome, which clearly gives the lie to the threats made that "St Albans would be at the mercy of developers” when in November 2012 we overturned the Local Plan that the Conservatives were then attempting to impose on the District.'
