Three Rivers District Council (TRDC) has identified green belt land in Croxley as the possible location for 133 new dwellings, as part of the new Local Plan.
The site, which currently houses Cinnamond House and is just off Cassiobridge on the border with Watford, was discussed at a meeting of TRDC’s Local Plan Sub-Committee on Thursday, August 3.
It’s one of 12 sites in the district identified by the sub-committee as being an area where developments could be constructed, as the overall harm to the wider green belt would be at a low to moderate level.
In a PowerPoint presentation shown at the meeting, it was noted that the majority of the site was on the brownfield register, with only a small portion being considered green belt, and that the location was in the heart of the village.
It was also noted that the area it’s located in is considered to be the most sensitive zone in terms of the potential risk of contamination to Croxley’s groundwater source.
Due to its proximity to the site of the now cancelled Croxley Rail Link, Transport for London had also been asked about the location.
Deputy Leader of TRDC councillor Stephen Giles-Medhurst said: “This is essentially a brownfield site, so it’s ripe for development.”
