195 HOMES: Housing evelopment plans in Radlett rejected

 Published on: 25th May 2023   |   By: Megan Milstead   |   Category: Uncategorized

Developers have submitted an appeal after their plans to build up to 195 homes in Radlett were rejected by Hertsmere Borough Council (HBC).

Fairfax Acquisitions Ltd planned to build the homes on land to the south of Shenley Hill, with a promise that 40 per cent of them would be affordable.

Land on the site would also be safeguarded for the expansion of Newberries Primary School and provision of a new medical centre.

A public inquiry will take place at Hertsmere Civic Offices on August 22 to 25 and August 30 and 31. The Planning Inspectorate is expected to make a decision on or before October 3.

The application was refused mainly due to the alleged scale of harm to the green belt.

In the appeal letter, the developers said it was necessary to consider the market and affordable housing need, the economic and social benefits, and the ecology and sustainability implications.

To read the application, search reference ‘22/1539/OUT’ on HBC’s planning portal.

Fairfax Acquisitions Ltd has been contacted for comment.
