Plans to build 34 homes on a Bushey equine centre has caused a stir for local residents, however they have been reassured that they will have more access to land with new public footpaths. A planning application has been submitted to Hertsmere Borough Council and Watford Borough Council, to knock an equestrian facility down in Bucks Meadow and replace it with 34 dwellings including 12 affordable homes. It is developers Clover Court Fusion who have submitted the application. The plan has been met some distain from local residents who expressed concern over the congestion and traffic. Mr Harkness, of Bucks Meadow, reassured resident and told My Bushey News that residents will in fact benefit from the development. He said: “There will be more open and it will be open to people. They will be able to go straight through when it is finished , which is more than they have every got and they are complaining about access. People will be given 25 acres of land to enjoy. “It will be smaller than the current site size and there will be clear big roads with no congestion.” The plan submitted includes the provision of public footpaths and cycleways connecting Bucks Avenue to a footpath and ecological enhancement of land to South East of dwellings. This includes biodiversity enhancement, landscaping, wildflower meadows, formation of ponds and communal orchard. At the time of going to press the application had not been decided but either council.
