A statement following last night's planning committee (17 June) regarding the submission of Bushey Hall Golf Club to Hertsmere's new Local Plan.
A Hertsmere Borough Council spokesman said: “Ross Whear, our Head of Planning, in an answer to a query advised the planning committee that the land at Bushey Hall Golf Club which has been proposed by the landowner as a new employment site did not meet the definition of ‘employment’, as set out in our existing plan.
“The land was submitted by the landowner in response to our call for employment sites for inclusion in our new Local Plan. The submission showed a multi-phased, mixed-use development, including provision of a new sports stadium.
“In our existing plan, employment is defined as uses which support economic development, in the form of offices, industrial, storage and distribution and other employment activities.
“Our new Local Plan will guide development and influence how the borough changes through the pandemic and over the next 15 years.
“Officers and Members are continuing to refine the final list of sites which will be included in the new Local Plan for a range of different uses. No final decisions have yet been made.
“We will be asking members of the public for their views once the draft Local Plan is published later this year.”
