Planning permission on the Clarendon Road scheme in Watford was allowed at appeal last week following an eight day Public Inquiry. The scheme comprises 247 apartments and 4,798sqm of office use spread over buildings ranging from 5 to 24 storeys. We provided Transport Planning and Water Management advice producing the Transport Assessment, Travel Plan, Drainage Strategy and SuDs Assessment, none of which were contentious. The issues examined at the Inquiry were whether the proposal would provide an acceptable level and type of floor space, the effect of the proposal on the character and appearance of the area, and whether the proposals would provide satisfactory living conditions for future occupiers.
