There are regular issues with traffic on the Lower Luton Road, especially at the junction with Station Road, and at the roundabout in Wheathampstead where it meets Lamer Lane and Codicote Road near St Albans High School for Girls. Traffic tails back from this roundabout to Cherry Tree Lane every morning with the volume of traffic at that junction, a distance of 1 mile.
Loss of Greenbelt
HCC are planning to compulsory purchase the green belt land which is currently used for agricultural use. Once purchased, they have said "its eventual use will be dependent on a wide range of issues" indicating that if plans don't go ahead for a school, there is the possibility that the land will be used for something else.
