Application details:

The property lies within an area administered by Dacorum Council. The site was granted consent for the ‘Demolition of existing retail car showroom, workshop and associated facilities and construction of 3 floors of offices and lobby areas, cafeteria and integrated basement parking (all matters reserved)’ in June 2017 (Ref 4/00722/17/MOA). This permission has now lapsed.

The site forms part of a key development site referred to as Site 1: Hemel Hempstead Station and Surroundings in the Two Waters Masterplan Guidance, which was adopted as a Planning Statement in 2018 and is due to be developed into a Supplementary Planning Document in 2022. The Guidance shows that the site falls within an area that would be suitable for residential development up to 4 and 6 storeys in height. The principle of residential development is supported by a pre-planning application statement and response from Dacorum Council.
