Sites under planning or development:
The Old Chapel site is located between Norris Close and Goldring Way and there is development going on now for flats and a retail unit. This site is privately owned and development started in 2015. Various planning applications are in play here and a new planning application will be submitted in June 2016 to remove the retail unit. As this was one of the initial requirements for Napsbury Park, the NPRA have a petition running to block the new planning permission: http://bit.ly/napsburyshop

Napsbury Park is a hamlet, listed by English Heritage as a Grade II Historic Park and Garden. It is located near the historic city of St Albans, Hertfordshire. The Park has access to a great network of major roads (M25, M1, A1) and mainline railway. Commuting into London by train into St Pancras takes as little as 20 minutes and the Park is situated within a 10 minute drive from the mainline stations. The closest stations are at St Albans and Radlett. There is also a bus route running through Napsbury Park, which takes you into St Albans.
Napsbury Park lies on the southern edge of St Albans. The Park is listed as an English Heritage site due to its wealth of history, which ranges from findings of prehistoric existence through to a large hospital, which played a key role in World War I. This page gives you a brief outline of that history.
The NPRA Committee has been striving to see wildlife increased in the Park. We first contacted the Royal Society for the Protection of Birds (RSPB) in 2013 to carry out a survey. Since then, we've had a number of surveys.
