We have been developing a very exciting community project for improving the environment around Smallford Station (a 150-year old Grade 2 Listed Building). We will be undertaking this in collaboration with staff and students at Oaklands College and the following Departments/Faculties are already involved in discussions with us –

  • Art & Design
  • Graphics, Multimedia and Photography
  • Carpentry and Joinery
  • Horticulture
  • Special Education Needs

The most recent development has been the decision to proceed with producing a Planning Application to present to St Albans District Council (with whom we have been co-operating for several years) and we are extremely lucky to have –

  • a District Councillor who is sponsoring us – and will meet the costs of The Application
  • a Town Planner and retired Architect who will develop and present The Application – and are providing their services for free!

And here are our exciting plans –

How are we going to achieve this?

  • Putting together a Cunning Plan – Latest drafts are available
  • Ongoing discussions with Oaklands College
  • Consulting and Involving
    * Smallford Residents’ Association
    * Local Councillors
    * St Albans District Council
    * HCC Countryside Management Service
    * Our Members, Friends and Associates
