Newberries future back in the spotlight

 Published on: 18th June 2019   |   By: Tim Green   |   Category: Uncategorized

The future of Newberries Car Park in Radlett was back in the spotlight last month.

Leaders at Hertsmere Borough Council have been advised by their officers to explore alternative development proposals for the site or continue with the existing proposal to develop a retail site and a hotel.

The council’s Executive will consider a report at its meeting as RadlettNews went to press about the future of Newberries Car Park in the village.  

Councillor John Graham, portfolio holder for property and finance, commented: “We need to reach a decision on the future of this site soon and to find an option that supports the vitality and viability of the area and creates jobs, brings people to the area and supports the local community. The car park surface also continues to deteriorate due to the ongoing hiatus over the site’s future use. That’s why our Executive is being asked to consider the options at our next meeting.”

“Local residents and businesses have, understandably, been very interested and engaged in exploring options for this key site so once a decision has been reached by our full council meeting in early July we’ll ensure that everyone is updated.”

Plans to build a hotel and a supermarket on the site were put on hold after a public outcry.

An annual general meeting at Aldenham Parish Council was attended by hundreds of local residents after the scheme was first put forward.

    A hotel is a good idea; there is only one, the Red Lion, in Radlett. Another upmarket shop would be a benefit too along with a decent cafe but I do have concerns about access. The current road into the car park won’t be sufficient if the site gets busier as it must do with the re-development that’s under consideration.
