St Albans City & District Council
Westminster Lodge is the Council’s main swimming pool and indoor sports facility. Built in 1971 it had become tired and a long term maintenance liability. The proposal involved a new pool and sports hall together with a health spa and restaurant making use of the site’s parkland setting, close to the City’s historic core.
Shire Consulting advised the Council and its team upon the content of the planning permission and conservation area consent applications and also wrote a number of the major supporting statements including the Planning Statement which considered the proposal against the terms of Central Regional and Local Government policy.
