Plans for twenty homes at Netteswell Hall back in front of planning committee
General / Wed 7th Apr 2021 at 09:02am
PLANNING permission is sought for the erection of 20 dwellings including the conversion of Netteswell Hall into four flats.
Netteswell Hall is situated off Park Lane near the Town Park.
The application has been submitted by Mrs J Ghadami.
The scheme has three elements: the demolition of extensions and conversion of Netteswell Hall into 4 flats; the creation of 8 two storey semi-detached and detached houses to the North of Netteswell Hall and backing onto Park Lane; and the erection of 8 two storey detached and semi-detached houses fronting onto Netteswell Orchard.
The proposed mix would be 4 one bedroom flats (20%), 2 two bedroom houses (10%), 10 three bedroom houses (50%) and 4 four bedroom houses (20%).
The scheme delivers 6 affordable units (30%).
The current scheme has been amended following detailed design advice from Place Services which has resulted in the proposed units being redesigned and a frontage being established to Netteswell Orchard. This resulted in three additional houses.
The full application can be found here.
This scheme also follows the dismissal of an appeal for the erection of 30 dwellings and associated parking and landscaping. This scheme involved the demolition of Netteswell Hall and four terraces with two semi-detached houses and car parking off Netteswell Orchard.
An application for “Erection of 30 Dwellings and Associated Parking and Landscaping” was rejected in 2018.
An appeal was dismissed: “I have found that the development would harm the character and appearance of the area.
“This would include a failure to preserve the character or appearance of the Conservation Area, causing harm, albeit less than substantial, to its significance as a heritage asset. It would also harm a non-designated heritage asset.”
The application will be heard by the Harlow Council Planning Committee on Wednesday April 14th (7.30pm). It can be watched on their YouTube channel.
