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.

    I was at the meeting at Marshalswick Baptist church. It seems unfortunate that those who 'council' us as our councillors are so shoddy, or feckless or corrupted in some manner. I am outraged that 'green belt' land is involved in any application and the fact that Cllr's claim not to understand this but make decisions on it is incredible. I understand the difference between 'sound' and 'legal' as much as any layman, this is why we are used as jurors, to decide upon law. Something barristers do not do, despite some peoples assertion. There is something rotten within our current set up and you have my full support in trying to fix it, whatever I can do to help. Andrew Stearn.

    Never good to build on precious green belt land and very damaging to St Albans without thinking about the infrastructure and long term impacts.

    This is a wholly inappropriate use of green belt land and the local infrastructure cannot support an additional 348 homes. Sandpit Lane and Hatfield Road are already very congested at peak times. This will destroy the views from Sandpit Lane.
    It is nothing more than a land grab by greedy budets and a cash strapped college
