A planning application has been made to Welwyn Hatfield Council.


Plans have been drawn up to demolish a family home and build eight “luxury” flats in its place.

Danyaal Hassan has applied to Welwyn Hatfield Council for permission to knock down the property at 77 Brookmans Avenue, Brookmans Park, which sits on a large plot.

The applicant would then build six two-bedroom flats, one three-bedroom flat and one single-bedroom apartment.

There are currently five parking spaces on the site, but the proposal is for 18.

In a design and access statement on behalf of the applicant, it is noted: “The design of the building has been especially targeted towards elder generations as there is a lift throughout the building and the building has been designed to Lifetime Home Standards.”

The statement continues: “The scale of the building has been sensitively considered from the inception of this project as currently there is no other building within Brookmans Avenue that has a density of eight apartments.

“There are apartment buildings being buildings of three and another of five however both of these sites are significantly smaller sites being narrower.

“Both of these sites combined equate to 77 Brookmans Avenue dimensions.”
