AN APPEAL against the council's decision to refuse developers permission for a new hotel and leisure complex in the city centre has been withdrawn.

As reported first by the Herts Advertiser last year, Antringham Verulamium lodged an appeal after St Albans district council turned down a �26-million proposal for the derelict Hertfordshire House site in Bricket Road.

An item was scheduled for discussion at next week's planning referrals committee meeting to discuss amendments to Antringham's proposal and a recommendation had been made to remove four of 11 reasons for refusal.

But it emerged today (Thursday) that Antringham, which purchased the site in 2007, has withdrawn its appeal.
