Supermarket chain Sainsbury's have submitted a planning application to St Albans Council for a new supermarket
adjacent to the Three Hammers Pub in Chiswell Green.
The proposed development includes a "metro" style convenience store with parking for fifty cars.
Local residents have already expressed concern about the implications for traffic congestion on the Watford Road and the impact this development might have for existing local businesses.
The proposal is in the consultation phase at St Albans Council until 7 Jan 2015, so if you would like to have your say on the development you can do so here
