North Herts College Success

DLA are pleased to share that NHDC Planning Committee resolved to grant planning permission for the demolition of the existing sports hall and squash court building, erection of new sports hall, provision of new 3G pitch on site, new car parking provision, remodelling of site to provide level access to new sports facilities and enabling development of 116 residential dwellings, new access road, open space, landscaping and associated works, at their meeting on 24 November.

DLA Town Planning acted as agent for both North Herts College and CALA Homes (North Home Counties) Ltd for a number of years developing the scheme through pre-application engagement with the District and County Councils, Sport England and other statutory consultees. We also supported public consultation events for local residents, students of the college and users of the existing sports facilities.  The planning application was then submitted and we progressed the application to a positive conclusion. Following the signing of the Section 106 Agreement, planning permission was issued on 29th March, 2021.
