The school has resubmitted plans for the Artificial pitch, addressing the area that councillors cited as the one and only reason to reject the initial submission-OPENING TIMES. The new application is identical to the initial plans but opening time has been reduced to 9.30pm during the week and the pitch will not be open on any Bank Holidays throughout the year. Weekend opening times remain unchanged at 6pm.
We are delighted to be able to say that the new submission was considered at Harpenden Town Council on 15th November. The committee recommended APPROVAL.
The application will be considered by St Albans Council in the coming months. We expect this to be after Christmas.
In the meantime, thank you for your continued support as we reach that part of the year when PE lessons, training and matches are routinely cancelled due to the unplayable conditions of our grass pitches. Once the timescale for consideration of our application is clearer, we will seek to encourage you to contact councillors to express your views.
