Homes to be built on old playground in Borehamwood
Plans to build two new homes on the site of a playground have been submitted.
The new homes are due to be built on the site of the former playground in Hackney Close, Borehamwood, and proposals have been submitted by Hertsmere Borough Council.
The council hopes to build two two-bedroom houses on the land and has submitted plans to its planning department.
In a design and access statement on the council planning website, the council says the proposals will make good use of otherwise redundant land.
The site has been derelict for a number of years following the authority’s decision to close it and provide better play areas elsewhere.
It said: “The proposed house follows a traditional design, with complementary materials, that will enhance the existing streetscape.
“At the forefront of the scheme, we have considered the needs of the local community who need high quality, affordable and sustainable housing.”
It goes on to say it has “taken great care with the style, choice of materials” to ensure the plans are in keeping with the surrounding area.
