Planning Applications

The Parish Council plays an active part in all local planning issues under the authority of St Albans City & District Council. It is probably the part of our role that is best known to the local community and can be very important.

Members of the public are able to comment in writing on any planning application, by post or email or through the St Albans Planning Department’s website. You can find more information on commenting on applications here.

The following table lists recent planning applications within the Parish for the calendar year from 1 January 2019 . We also have an archive of planning cases from 2017 and 2018 here.

  • User notes:
  • You can sort the table below by clicking the arrows in the headings.
  • Clicking on the left-most cell Planning Dept Ref will take you directly to St Albans District Council’s detailed record for that case.
