Pass Go and collect

It's a brilliant coup for St Albans to win top spot on the new Monopoly board. We were the only political party to support this campaign – on this website and also standing in the rain in St Albans market to draw people’s attention to the Monopoly voting website. It’s a bit of fun, it puts St Albans firmly on the map.

But it also shows that people care passionately about our city and its distinctive identity.  Government planners may want to lump us into the horribly named ‘London Arc West’ as part of the East of England Regional Spatial Strategy.  All ghastly jargon to disguise their attack on the Green Belt. This vote is yet another way that local people are just saying No.
