No Oaklands Development on Sandpit Lane

Say No to the Oaklands Development on Sandpit Lane.


Please sign our petition and help us stop the building of 350 houses on Sandpit Lane.

Visit nooaklands.org to see how you can get involved and say no to over-congested roads, no to oversubscribed schools, no to extended waiting lists for doctors and dentists. No to Oaklands development on Sandpit Lane.

Oakland College and Taylor Wimpey are planning to build 350 new houseson the productive, arable fields at Oaklands to the south of Sandpit Lane. And to access these new dwellings, there are plans for just one new access road to Sandpit Lane.

There are further plans to increase the faculty at Oaklands bringing 800 staff, 3000 full-time students and 8,000 part-time students into the area.

These far-reaching plans threaten the local environment and the qualityof life for local residents. Thousands of additional cars will put furtherstrain on our transport system - particularly on Sandpit Lane and thejunction with Marshalswick Lane and Beechwood Avenue - making analready difficult drive to school and work in rush-hour, impossible.

• 350 new houses alone will mean600 or 700 more cars on our already overcrowded roads - every day.

• 350 new houses will make it harder to get appointments to see your doctor or dentist.

• 350 new houses will lead tolonger waiting lists to enter ouralready over-subscribed schools.

There are better sites available within the Oaklands campus. Please visit www.nooaklands.org for more information.

Please sign this petition and send your message now.St Albans is a great place to live. Together, we can keep it that way.

No Oaklands.No development on Sandpit Lane.

  • David Farlam The traffic is already bad without the addition of 350 extra houses.

  • Bren Parkins-Knight I have concern on the impact to local secondary schools, especially Beaumont

    and I live and work in Jersey Farm.
    I understand that there is a need for new housing in St Albans, but I strongly believe that the Council should be investigating the possibility of maximising brownfield sites within St Albans before even considering creating a spread of new low density housing on the lovely fields on Sandpit Lane.
