In a further development regarding the proposed rail freight interchange at Park Street, St Albans City & District Council has received notification of an extension to the Secretary of State’s decision making timescales.
The Secretary of State originally proposed to allow until 28 February 2013 for the planning obligation to be submitted, before proceeding to a final decision. However, in a letter dated 24 January 2013, the Secretary of State has agreed to a request from Helioslough to extend the period to 28 March 2013.
This is to allow Hertfordshire County Council’s Cabinet to consider the matter at its meeting on 25 February. The County Council owns land included in the proposed rail freight interchange site.
