CAT & FIDDLE: Plans to create eight new homes on derelict pub site in Radlett

 Published on: 20th April 2023   |   By: Megan Milstead   |   Category: Uncategorized

Developers have submitted plans to create eight new dwellings on the site of a former pub in Radlett.

If the application is approved, the Cat & Fiddle pub on Cobden Hill will be converted into a single residential dwelling, and seven three-bedroom homes will be built on the land behind it.

CMI Architects submitted the plans on March 20, which include 16 standard car parking spaces, two visitor spaces, an amenity space, a refuse store, and associated landscaping.

A spokesperson for CMI Architects said: “The application seeks to return the public house to its former residential use in the form of a residential unit, along with an additional seven residential units on the vacant hardstanding to the rear of the site.

“The former public house is Grade II listed, and it has been noted that the newer extensions have a negative impact on the conservation area. It is proposed that some of the extensions are removed, and the building returned to residential use.

“As encouraged by the Conservation Area Appraisal, the increased usability of the building as a dwelling will aid its preservation.

“There are significant benefits expected to be delivered by the development of this site. These include eight well-designed residential units, providing much-needed homes; the reuse of a vacant, previously developed site – a site identified on the council’s brownfield register of sites for development, reducing the need for greenfield sites; additional family residential units to further add to the mix of housing types available in Radlett; the removal of modern additions to a Grade II listed building that have been regarded as having a negative impact; protection of listed assets and a new use for the vacant building which ensures the conservation of the property through a new use.”
