ANTAS meeting, Harpenden,  23 October 2004 - Hon Sec's note on the organisation

St. Albans Civic Society has recently raised a concern about legal liability. They note that their Committee is regularly having to oppose what it considers to be inappropriate developments in St. Albans and ask what would be the position and liabilities of the Trustees in the event of legal action. This concern arises out of a recent incident where a local resident, not a Society member, was threatened with legal action by a developer because of comments on a website he had set up as part of a campaign against a controversial planning application.

If you have any views or information on this matter, please contact the St. Albans Secretary, Donato Cinicolo (see ANTAS Directory for details), and send a copy of any mail to me.
