CALL TO ACTION - Amended Planning Application
A planning amendment has been submitted to build flats on the Station Pub site. The revised proposal still does not include viable plans for a pub.
Call to Action: Why we need you to respond again NOW
If we do not object again it will be seen as acceptance of the amended application. Even if you responded to the first proposal, please would you do so again before the deadline, 31st October. This can be your original objection with a simple covering letter (please see example here).
If approved, these plans ensure that a pub would not be able to operate on the site. Please support our campaign to block this planning application. The community run pub that we are hoping to achieve will be totally different from how it was before. It will be a pub that you as individuals and clubs will want to use for social events and bring your friends and family to.
Please see more detail on what YOU can do to help here.
An amendment to the planning application for the Station Pub has been made to NHDC, application number 17/01622/1.The deadline for comments on the application is 31st October so please take action NOW.
The public consultation period on the application ended on Monday 28th August 2017. You can read the comments made by the statutory consultees, such as Knebworth Parish Council, as well as members of the public - search with this application number on NHDC's planning portal: http://pa.north-herts.gov.uk/
Once the consultation period is over, the next step is for the application to be considered by North Herts District Council's Planning Control committee which meets monthly. We do not yet know when the application will be on the agenda, but will keep watching the NHDC website for information. The meetings are open to the public and usually held in Letchworth.

Our next fund-raising event will be in October when we will be having a fantastic Songs from the Shows entertainment evening on Saturday, 21st October
See the Diary of Future Events for dates of the events planned for the rest of 2017.
Please come along and support our events to help Knebworth retain a community pub.
