Last year in the December edition of CroxleyNews, we featured an article on a petition against the proposed development of The Windmill in Croxley Green.
A year on with new planning applications submitted by developers it seems as if the development is still up in the air with comments of both objection and support left online on the Three Rivers District Council website.
There were initially concerns surrounding the accuracy of the planning application, many of which have been solved but residents are still concerned.
One comment read: “Whilst I can see the effort of the owner to really listen to what has been said about the objections to the current plans and make necessary changes, I personally still feel Windows in the dust cap are not needed.
“To me, I feel it’s like a viewing perch and today looking at the windmill with the trees bare from no leaves, I can see very clearly at the cap from my front window.”
Another comment left a similar comment which read: “We also want to highlight the loss of privacy through the windows in the Cap. Why does this need windows – these aren’t original nor within original pictures – skylights ‘yes, looking upwards’ but not windows, as viewing into close properties from height should not be approved and therefore rejected.”
However, it appears some are in support of development now changes to the planning application have been made.
One comment read: “The revised scheme has been updated and improved various times over the last year following comments from the council and neighbours. it’s clear the owner is committed to fully restoring the Windmill.”
