Future of Queen Adelaide pub in Shenley to be decided tonight
A derelict pub could be demolished to make way for new houses if developers' plans are approved tonight.
Queen Adelaide pub in London Road, Shenley, would be knocked down and replaced with three properties under proposals submitted by Chasara Limited.
The plans show one detached house sited adjacent to London Road and two semi-detached houses backing onto Pound Lane.
There would also be seven parking spaces under a pergola as well as a space for cars to turn around.
The Queen Adelaide closed in February 2011 and the building has remained unused. It lies empty near to a Georgian prison cell called The Cage, which is Grade II listed.
A previous application for four houses was rejected by the planning inspectorate who said the development would detriment the conservation area.
Members of Hertsmere Borough Council’s planning committee will assess the application tonight but planning officers have already recommended the development for approval.
The meeting will be held at 6pm in the Civic Offices in Elstree Way, Borehamwood.
