Proposals for a former fire station site are being shown to residents this Tuesday at an exhibition at the Pioneer Youth Club.

A new use for the Ariston Works site in Harpenden Road, St Albans, has yet to be decided on but the county council is preparing a planning application of possible options. Potential avenues include residential development, open space and to relocate the existing community uses to a new building on the site.

Derrick Ashley, cabinet member for resources and transformation, said: “We would encourage everyone to come along to the exhibition and take a look at the proposals for the site which will include houses, open spaces and new locations for existing community facilities.

“It is important that local residents take the opportunity to make their views and any concerns known.”

The exhibition will be held at the Heathlands Drive venue from 2pm to 7.30pm, with another scheduled from 10am to 12pm on January 14.

Following the first event on December 17, the exhibition panels and a questionnaire will be available at until January 21.
