The Ashley Wilde Group - which has made a range of soft furnishing brands for Kylie Minogue, Kirtsy Allsop and Elizabeth Hurley - has submitted a planning application for Unit 4A on Travellers Lane in the parish of North Mymms.

The application, which was validated last Wednesday, marks the most recent expansion of the property.

But the application has been objected to on the grounds that it is "salami-slicing" the development by Welwyn Hatfield borough councillor Paul Zukowskyj.

"It results in a hodgepodge of development, in an apparent attempt to avoid assessment of cumulative impacts," said Cllr Zukowskyj.

The Ashley Wilde Group has been contacted for a comment, but have so far not responded.
