Plans have been lodged to convert a former Kings Langley pub into housing.

A notice in this week’s Watford Observer states Leewood Construction have applied to convert what was The Bell pub in Primrose Hill into three flats and to build two, two-storey semi-detached homes.

The former pub is a listed building.

Three Rivers District Council has also received an application to demolish a former petrol station and ten lock-up garages to build two detached five-bedroom houses facing Wolsey Road and North Approach in Moor Park.

Meanwhile, a section of road in both Sarratt and Aldenham are set to temporarily close for roadworks as early as next month and periodic disruption may last for more than a year.

The notice from Hertfordshire County Council states vehicles will be prohibited from using Sarratt Road from a point 50m south west of its junction with Dimmocks Lane south westwards and south eastwards for approximately 300m, except for access.

If the order is made, it will come into force on February 9 and will last for up to 18 months. However, the restrictions will only be enforced at the times shown by signs on or near the road.

The alternative route during these times will be via Sarratt Road, Dimmocks Lane, The Green Poles Hill, Dunny Lane, The Street, The Common, Bucks Hill, Toms Lane, Chandlers Lane, Redhall Lane and Sarratt Road.

The county council has also applied to close Summerhouse Lane in Aldenham from a point 59m north east of its junction with Hillfield Lane north eastwards for a distance of approximately 60m, except for access.

This order, if made, will take effect on February 10 and may also last for up to 18 months. Again though, it will only be enforced at the times shown by road signs.

The diversion will be via Summerhouse Lane, Hillfield Lane, B462 Radlett Road, Primrose Lane and Summerhouse Lane.
