Kier ‘breaches planning conditions’ on Croxley Danes School site

 Published on: 2nd November 2018   |   By: Rebecca Dundon   |   Category: Uncategorized

Residents are in disarray with construction contractor, Kier, and say it is in breaching planning conditions at a sight in Croxley. 

Construction work at Croxley Danes School is under way, but Kier is reportedly breaching its contract by using Lodge Lane as an access route for its lorries. 

Residents who have their houses backing onto the lane have a right of access and have been unable to use the road properly. 

Local residents contacted Councillor Alison Wall, to inform her of the breach in planning conditions.

She said: “I was grateful that residents raised their concerns. I raised this with the TRDC planning officer, who confirmed there had been a breach. Not one of the other ward Councillors was aware of the breach in planning conditions. 

“Our TRDC planning officers do a brilliant job and are often under great pressure, but it would be helpful to have known of this breach to reassure our residents that the Council was keeping tabs on this situation and making progress to achieving resolution.”

A Kier spokesperson said: “We are proud to be delivering this new school that will provide 1,200 much-needed pupil places to the Croxley Green area. The Planning Authority granted us with access to the site via Lodge End road which was critical to the delivery of the school. Working with Hertfordshire County Council and Three Rivers District Council, and as part of the construction works we are currently creating a new access point to the site off of Baldwins Lane.

“We have engaged with local residents, keeping them updated on the progression of the project and we have kept Lodge End road well-maintained throughout. We would like to thank the local community for their continued patience and understanding during this time.”

If you have any issues about the development please contact Cllr Alison Wall at alison.wall@threerivers.gov.uk
