Hub are delighted to have gained Planning approval for 13 new houses, including 5 affordable homes, in Hertsmere. Approval followed an extensive pre-application process with the Local Authority and Local interest Groups. The end result is a proposal that delivers high quality design, based around a farmstead style development, using materials and design precedents that will enhance the character of this Green Belt site. The house type form, architectural detail and materiality have evolved through the Planning consultation process. The house designs are “L” shaped plan forms and grouped in pairs to create an enclosure of external space similar to that found in rural farmyards.
