Plans to build student car park at Royal Veterinary College unveiled
PLANS to build a car park capable of holding 121 student vehicles have been unveiled by bosses at the Royal Veterinary College (RVC) in Brookmans Park.
It is hoped the move, should it be approved by Welwyn Hatfield Council, will help alleviate the parking problems that have blighted the lives of residents of Hawkshead Lane for many years.
An RVC spokesman said: “Student parking has recently been a contentious issue for local residents, as, due to the sheer mass of students at the RVC, students had parked in the surrounding roads.
“The car park proposal follows ongoing discussions with the local MP, police, county council and local council officials, along with residents, as to how they can deal with the issue.
“It was concluded, among other things, that building a car park on campus would be the best possible solution for all parties.”

He added: “Local stakeholder groups have already supported the move, as the car park will stop the wider implications of parked cars in residential areas and the environmental impact this could have on the local community.
“Along with the car park proposal, the RVC is initiating other measures that aim to reduce its impact on the local environment, such as green travel plans and a clear way order on roads surrounding the college.”
