Hertsmere Borough Council has approved plans for two new homes in Carrington Avenue and Lullington Garth, Borehamwood

Plans to build two new four-bedroom homes in a residential garden have been approved.

Development firm Blenheim Realty submitted proposals to erect the semi-detatched homes on land on the corner of Carrington Avenue and Lullington Garth, Borehamwood.

One will have a double garage to the side while the other will have a car port.

Hertsmere Borough Council received two objections to the plans from neighbours to the site, stating that the new homes would overlook existing properties, and increase problems caused by car parking and traffic.

At the council’s planning meeting held on March 6, Councillor Pat Strack also spoke against the application. She claimed the proposals amounted to inappropriate development on a garden positioned on a dangerous corner, so access would not be safe.

But in a report to the council, planning officers wrote: “There is no objection to the principle of the residential use of this site, as the site is currently a residential garden. Also, the creation of additional dwellings contributes to Hertsmere’s housing delivery.”

Permission was granted by the committee, subject to the completion of a Section 106 agreement, which secures money from the developer for education, public leisure and other facilities provided by the borough and county councils.

I think they should rename Borehamwood as Hertsmere as they seem to be building every house and flat planned for the county here.

Elstree Way is filling up fast. Flats everywhere, we are being swallowed up by the urbans sprawl of London. This is a village when I was born, once you start building tall towers we will lose the country feel. We have lost many schools and our college (in Elstree Way - now full of flats and houses), now we are going to lose part of Hertswood to more flats. Now they have started building in back gardens - Milton Drive! planning given for 4 flats in a road that is so full I avoid driving along it, it is madness and I feel sorry for the people who live there now, no consideration for them. Please stop if there is no where to live in Borehamwood then maybe people can look at place nearby to live.
