A planning application has been submitted to Welwyn Hatfield Council for a wedding venue at a Grade 1 listed mansion.

The applicant, a Mr C Chima, of ACED Development Ltd in Welwyn, is proposing a change of use of North Mymms Park, Tollgate Road, North Mymms.

North Mymms Park is a mansion set within a landscaped estate, surrounded by farmland, woodland and parkland.

The proposal is to change it from a training centre and conference facility to a wedding venue with ceremonies and corporate events.

In the design and access statement, specialist conservation architect Francesca Weal writes: “This is an application for change of use only without any development.

“Therefore there is no design to make a statement about.”
