A planning application has been submitted to add a new floor to a set of flats in Watford.
The apartments, located at 103 to 114 Courtlands Close (just south of the A41), are currently part of a three-storey building containing 10 self-contained homes.
If approved, the proposals would see an extra storey added to the building, allowing another floor of four flats to be built.
No new parking would be added, but the application’s cover letter states that adequate parking is already provided as part of the building’s current layout.
The cover letter goes on to discuss the proposal’s design, stating: “The design and materiality of the additional storey will mimic the existing building using the same exterior materials, multi red and yellow bricks. The placement of the proposed windows also matches the existing fenestration. Brickwork detailing along the copings will be introduced to mirror the existing detailing at the fourth floor.
“Internally, new flats shall include high quality fixtures and fittings and ample built-in storage space.”
