Plans have been submitted to redevelop a restaurant as well as a former takeaway, cafe, and office.

The buildings in Bushey high street would be demolished and rebuilt into homes with the existing restaurant taking on the new ground floor space.

Agent Nexus Planning says the current site is "tired" and believe its proposal provides a more "contemporary design" that will "better respond" to the character of the area.

The land is currently home to European bistro-style restaurant Blue Check while the offices, and adjoining takeaway and cafe are all empty.

The scheme would involve the creation of a three storey building of nine flats - five one-beds, three two-beds, and one three-bed, with Blue Check moving into a new restaurant space.

A planning statement by Nexus Planning states the flats will be available at market housing tenure which means none will be designated as "affordable".

However, Nexus says the plans on the brownfield site provide an "excellent" opportunity to contribute to Hertsmere's housing targets.

At basement level, the plans state there will be eight car parking spaces with the car park accessed from Koh-I-Noor Avenue.

The application by Fleetwood Limited will be considered by Hertsmere Borough Council at a later date.

The plans can be found on the council's planning portal via reference 22/0045/FUL.
