Plans have been submitted to build a three-storey house in the back garden of another home in Bushey.

The proposals would see the "large plot" at 61 High Street, which currently houses a semi-detached property, split in two to fit the extra dwelling on the 92 square metre land.

If approved, the new home would have four bedrooms and two bathrooms across three floors with a sitting room, kitchen-dining room, and an in-built garage.

In the application currently awaiting decision by Hertsmere Borough Council, the applicant said the new house would match the size, shape and characteristics of the existing building “as reasonably possible”.

They argued that it would not detract from the listed status of no. 61, but would "enhance the street scene in harmony".

The proposed roof would be no higher than the neighbouring house at its highest point and would match the existing ridgeline.

An electric vehicle charging point, bin store and bicycle store would also be built in the front driveaway.

The proposals were originally submitted in February but appeared on the council's website on May 9.
