Plans to build on the green belt and an application to demolish a petrol station will be heard tonight.

We will be at the council offices in Borehamwood from 6pm as councillors decide whether to give the go ahead for two separate applications on green belt land near Well End.

Campaigners have objected to developments to build a new primary school and 58 homes on land behind Hertswood Academy near Potters Lane.

However, if one application is rejected, then neither development will go ahead. Both proposals are recommended for approval by council officers.

Borehamwood Times:

Meanwhile, in Radlett, plans to demolish the Esso petrol station in Watling Street and replace it with an office building will be heard tonight. A second application was submitted earlier this year after the applicants were told to come up with a more “contemporary” style by planners.

The application has been recommended for approval, although there are several conditions attached.

Borehamwood Times:

The second design on the right is what is being proposed and heard tonight in Radlett

Also being decided tonight is a proposal for a two storey building for nine flats in Theobald Street on land next to The Wellington Pub in Borehamwood. To grant permission is recommended by officers.

And an 80-bed care home could be given the go-ahead this evening as well in Castleford Close, Borehamwood. The proposal is to knock down the existing empty 24-bedroom mental health home and build a new three storey 80-bedroom dementia care home.

Approval is recommended by council officers.

You can follow the evening live in our blog on the Borehamwood Times website from 6pm. There will be also be links via our Facebook page.
