2nd Rejection for Garden Grabbing Application

The chairman of a group opposed to “garden grabbing developments” in Radlett said it is a massive relief that a planning application for Homefield Road was rejected for the second time.

Radlett Against Garden Grabbing (RAGG) was set up last year by around 70 local homeowners who wanted to retain the unique character and ambience of Radlett, in the aftermath of the first planning application to turn the rear gardens of 47 and 49 Homefield Road into three additional detached two storey four bedroom houses.

The application was first refused in June 2013 on grounds of overdevelopment. It was refused for the second time last month by Hertsmere Borough Council at a planning meeting for the same reason.
