Plans to demolish the existing building and construct seven homes were approved last July, before a proposal with one additional four-bedroom dwelling and extra parking spaces was granted permission in October.

The report to Welwyn Hatfield Council said: “(The development) would not conflict with the purposes of including land in the Green Belt.

“The impact upon the street scene would be acceptable and would represent a significant improvement to the appearance of the site and the existing worn building there.”
