Venus Healthcare Group lodge appeal against Hertsmere Borough Council over extension rejection
A Bushey care home has launched an appeal against Hertsmere Borough Council’s decision to refuse planning permission for an extension.
Venus Healthcare Group have launched the appeal after the council threw out the application to erect ground floor and first floor extensions comprising four bedrooms with ensuite bathrooms, as well as a loft conversion at the Finch Lane property.
The proposal was rejected due to the high visibility the crown roof would have when viewed down Finch Lane and Herkomer Road.
The council ruled that: "The excessive width and depth of the crown roof would be highly visible in the street scene and would add an unreasonable amount of bulk and mass to the parent roof form."
The healthcare group has launched the appeal, with will be dealt with by an exchange of written statements by the parties involved and a site visit by the Planning Inspector.
To comment on the appeal, write to the Planning Inspectorate, 3/19 Kite Wing, Temple Quay House, 2 The Square, Temple Quay, Bristol, BS1 6PN quoting reference: APP/N1920/A/13/2202756.
Representations should be received by the inspectorate no later than September 18.
To view the appellant’s grounds of appeal visit www.hertsmere.gov.uk or the documents can be viewed at the Civic Offices, in Elstree Way, in Borehamwood.
