The Clerk updated the Committee on two planning appeals which had been received:

 

i.                 Eastmoor Lodge East Common Harpenden

 

This appeal has been superceded by a new application which has now been granted planning permission by the St Albans District Council Planning North Committee.  However, the appellant can still progress with this appeal until a decision is made by the Planning Inspector.
