A planning application has been submitted to East Herts District Council for the conversion of St Nicholas Hall and the School Room and the first floor of the Verger’s House from A1 (retail) to C3 (residential) use to provide one self-contained dwelling and one first floor residential flat. There are no proposed changes to the retail frontage along St.Andrew Street.
St.Andrew Street falls within Bengeo ward and the BNAP Community Steering Group has issued a response to the proposals.
We broadly welcome the proposals in this planning application, subject to them being consistent with the policies in the draft Bengeo Neighbourhood Area Plan, and with relevant Local Plan, Conservation Area and Listed Building policies and guidelines.
The public consultation closes on 8th October 2020.
