‘ABSOLUTELY OUTRAGEOUS’: Planning application in Kings Langley causes a stir among residents 

 Published on: 26th October 2019   |   By: News Desk   |   Category: Uncategorized

Hempstead Road residents in Kings Langley have shared their concerns about a planning application submitted to Dacorum Borough Council recently. 

The proposal, if accepted, will see 16 Hempstead Road demolished and built into eight flats with eight parking spaces. 

Since the application was submitted in September 11, people have objected against the plans saying it has an unattractive design, would add to the already established parking troubles and the shape and size would overlook neighbouring properties. 

One resident, who wanted to remain anonymous, spoke to KingsNews about their disgust in the proposal. 

They said: “It is absolutely outrageous. If the council accept this, it shows they don’t care for their community. I just can’t imagine how this is going to look among the other houses down the road. 

“Eight flats could possibly add 16 cars down the road. Where the hell will they all park?”

An objection on the application read: “The layout and density of the building on what was previously a single property gives the impression of a hospital or prison block rather than a residential property.

“The size and shape of the property will overlook neighbouring properties and remove any privacy they may have expected or previously enjoyed.

“The size and shape of the property will considerably overshadow neighbouring properties, leading to a significant loss of light.”
