“Campaigners hailed a “huge victory” in the High Court in October after successfully overturning Eric Pickles’ decision to grant the council approval to develop the site.”

Meanwhile “In December, the committee was told Hertfordshire County Council had submitted a formal request requesting for the allotment land to be allocated for a new primary school.” http://www.watfordobserver.co.uk/news/11722660.Council_resubmits_application_to_minister_over_Farm_Terrace_land/
So far WBC have spent over £20000 of tax-payers’ money on Court fees. It seems for FibDems money is no object.

Comment: “If I remember only 2,000 out of a population of 86,000 in Watford took part in the survey. So that is 2.3 % of the population took part in the survey. So 77% of 2.3 %. Do you think that is reflective?”
GovWatch: Nothing’s changed? Oh yes it has. Watford now has an Autocrat and NOT a Democrat.
