Great Crested Newts have been identified on the Paddock Road allotments so the planned improvement works will be delayed until Natural England issue a European Protected Species Licence. This will delay the planned work, probably until April 2015.
Watford Council, in anticipation of their new submission regarding Watford General Hospital, are seeking to submit a planning application in December to turn one of the fields adjacent to the depot at Paddock Road into more allotments. The Council has not yet issued a plan for the proposed extension, which will have to be submitted to Hertsmere Borough Council as the land falls within their boundary. Once the plan is available we will publish it.
