The planning application for a controversial multi-storey car park in Berkhamsted has been called in to the secretary of state.

Proposals for a 331-space car park in Lower Kings Road next to Waitrose, replacing the 122-space pay and display car park owned by Dacorum Borough Council, were given the green light last week.

But it has emerged that the application will first be subject to a planning inquiry after it was called in to the secretary of state.

More to follow.
