Watford Borough Council’s Development Control Commiteee has approved GS8’s plans to regenerate 147a – 149b St Albans Road, near Watford Junction station.
The plans include:
- 146 high quality and new private homes, including affordable homes;
- New commercial space, likely to be workspace for start-ups and independent businesses;
- Listed building being brought back into use alongside Pope’s Yard Brewery for artisan tap room and community space;
- Car and cycle parking, including 10 new car club vehicles for our residents and local residents to use;
- Play space and landscaping;
Pope’s Yard Brewery will occupy the Old Station House building, which is on the site, operating it as an artisan tap room, exhibition and community space.
Ben Spencer, from GS8 said:
“We are delighted the Development Management Committee approved our application last night. It’s been a long and challenging journey to this point, and we want to thank all those who have supported the development including officers, local stakeholders and ultimately Councillors.
“We are delighted to continue investing in Watford and look forward to getting started as soon as possible and delivering a high quality scheme of 146 new homes, commercial and community uses, and an artisan tap room by Pope’s Yard Brewery.”
