A BID to extend an unauthorised caravan site in Bricket Wood has been turned down and enforcement action is due to be taken against the site owner.

Ned Connors, who has around six caravans on the site at the back of Woodview Lodge in Lye Lane, had applied for retrospective permission to keep two static caravans and a mobile kitchen unit there.

But St Albans District Council's plans (south) committee refused the application on the grounds that it was Green Belt land.

It is believed Mr Connors runs a block paving business form the site and wanted the extra units to house and feed his workers.
