Plans for 150 homes on Terminus Street in front of planning committee

News / Thu 8th Oct 2020 at 02:53pm

PLANS for 150 homes on Terminus Street are set to go before the Harlow Council planning committee.

The proposal would involve the partial demolition of the existing car park and its redevelopment for a mixed-use development.

The proposal would involve the erection of a part 9, part 10 and part 11 storey building, configured as a square-shape at ground, 1st and second floor levels with two conjoined blocks above forming an “L-shape” with their front facades facing the eastern and southern boundaries of the site. Part of the car-park also extends the site along the eastern boundary.

The proposal would provide 150 residential dwellings of 1, 2 and 3 bedrooms (60 x 1- bed; 82 x 2-bed and 8 x 3-bed).

Six comments were received objecting to the proposed development on the following grounds:

  • Overdevelopment, high density and an eyesore
  • Overshadow the adjoining hotel and residential properties
  • Low amount of affordable housing
  • No provision of doctors or educational monies
  • Loss of adjoining hotel parking spaces from Terminus Street Car Park
  • Noise during and after construction (due to through road) affecting hotel business
  • Concerns for pedestrian/cyclist safety to south of building
  • Reduced privacy to hotel bedrooms
  • Insufficient parking provision
  • Building would not provide decent housing or greenspace
  • People will not buy accommodation due to Terminus House concerns
  • Removal of southern entry/exist to Terminus Street Car Park resulting in congestion
    on the south-bound carriageway/underpass on Velizy Avenue
  • Increased concern for safety of pedestrians and cyclists on Velizy Avenue

Full details can be found below.


The meeting will be held virtually on Wednesday October 14th on the Harlow Council YouTube channel.
