Politicians were talked into backing Berkhamsted Prep School’s plans for three new Eton Fives courts and a drop-off facility.

Berkhamsted Town Council’s planning committee had previously objected due to parking fears.

But school estates director Rob Grant told the group on Monday that Dacorum parking rules will not allow any more spaces at the Doctors Commons Road site.

He added that there will soon be 100 fewer pupils and 10 fewer staff at the site, as they will move to the new Haresfoot School site.
