Fresh plans for flats in Hatfield
PUBLISHED: 10:30 04 August 2018
A proposal has been put forward for seven flats with 10 parking spaces and a bike store in Hatfield.
Danewell Ltd has applied to Welwyn Hatfield Council to develop 14-16 Bishops Rise.
The plans involve the demolition of part of the existing buildings followed by the construction of a part-single and part two-storey extension to both properties.
Number 14 would be converted to two two-bedroom and two one-bedroom flats.
Danewell Ltd would turn number 16 into one two-bedroom and two one-bedroom flats.
This is a revised planning application after two previous proposals were rejected.
One of them was for seven flats, but turned down on the grounds that the floor space was “excessively small” and “would not provide adequate living conditions for future occupiers”.
The earlier plan for eight flats was rejected in December last year, again for inadequate floor space but also due to the scale of the extensions.
In a decision notice, the council said the flats would “fail to complement and reflect the design and character of each building and would be out of keeping with the character and context of built form in the existing area”.
