Late last night it is understood that the St Albans City and District Council (SADC) decided to continue its fights against the controversial rail freight interchange at Park Street.
The Conservative candidate for St Albans, Anne Main said ‘I welcome the council putting up such a plucky fight against this high-pressured challenge to the green belt.
‘The council is principled in defending its assets and I think that we should recognise the determination of SADC in its attempts to protect unwanted proposals from developers trying to impose their will on the district.
‘When I attended the recent High Court deliberations, points certainly were raised that I did not feel were necessarily addressed in the judgement.
‘It’s vital we re-examine the conclusions that were drawn back in February; the council have shown their mettle and this gutsy decision to appeal is to be applauded.’
