A planning application for a service station which threatened to have a detrimental impact on Kings Langley has been refused.
The application for the Moto service station site at junction 20 of the M25 was rejected by Three Rivers District Council yesterday (Thursday, June 24).
This decision follows the recommendations from Highways England and Herts County Council Highways to refuse the application.
Many residents who worried about the pressure this would put on traffic coming in and out of the village will be delighted by the decision.
Kings Langley District & Residents’ Association have monitored the development closely and say although it is great news it is not the final step.
The group shared a post on their Facebook page updating residents on the refusal of the application.
They wrote: “Three Rivers District Council has this evening rejected Moto’s application for a Motorway Service Area at junction 20 of the M25.
“This is great news but not the final decision which ultimately rests with the Secretary of State for Transport. KL&DRA will continue to monitor the situation and bring you further updates as the next steps occur.”
