Developers launch appeal over plans to demolish pub in Shenley

Borehamwood Times: Developers launch appeal over plans to demolish pub Developers launch appeal over plans to demolish pub

Developers have launched an appeal after the council refused to allow the demolition of a pub and the building of four new houses.

Hertsmere Borough Council refused planning permission to knock down the Queen Adelaide pub, in London Road, Shenley, last November.

At the time, the council said: “The demolition of the existing building would be detrimental to the character and appearance of Shenley Conservation Area.”

But Firecrest Real Estate is now appealing against the decision. The developer wants to build four, three-bedroom houses with space for eight cars.

The pub closed last February and is located next to the village’s Cage Pond and war memorial.

The appeal has now been sent to the Secretary of State for Communities and Local Government and will be dealt with over the coming months.

If houses or flats are built there if will ruin the look of the area.....is no piece of land safe, and what about the wild life in the pond, I am sure they would suffer if any building works commenced so close by.

How on earth are they to fit four family sized homes and gardens on that little plot ?
There are newts in that pond how would the building not harm them ?
With a big build happening in the old garden centre sight just across the road there really is no need for any development on this site . It is a shame the Queen Adelaide shut as it was the only good pup in Shenley

I look from here down under to the district of my youth, but since it is now surrounded by the M25, anything can happen it seems to me
