Say No to the Oaklands Development on Sandpit Lane.
The Oaklands development will destroy valuable countryside and put further strain on local infrastructure, communications and facilities. The development prioritises the interests of Oaklands College over those of the community to an unjustifiable extent and should be rejected for that reason.
Our outlook to the rear of the property being a resident of Wheatleys, (which is currently of fields filled with very vocal sheep!) would be replaced completely by a revolting and extensive view of the newly proposed toy town! Our road is elevated which gives a pleasant view over the houses on Sandpit Lane towards the fields. The proposed site is also elevated so it will not be hidden at all!
The traffic on sandpit lane is already too heavy during rush hour periods and there would not be adequate school places available for the influx of 300 odd new families with children of school age which they would undoubtedly be. Young families already move to the area to be in the catchment areas for Beaumont and Sandringham.
This part of St Albans cannot possibly support an additional 350 homes without significant investment in local infrastructure. The roads are busy, all the local schools are full, and all local facilities are over subscribed
