Overview

Land at Smug Oak Lane, Bricket Wood received Outline planning permission in March 2016 for the redevelopment of the site to provide up to a total of 129 new homes, which includes refurbishment to the Old Lodge and Hanstead House, and access via Smug Oak Lane.

Following a public exhibition held in July 2018, Linden Homes and Wates Developments, working together as joint venture partners, have now submitted a reserved matters planning application to St Albans City and District Council to develop 129 new homes on land at Smug Oak Lane.

Linden Homes’ and Wates Developments’ reserved matters planning application seeks permission for:

  • An attractive mix of 129 new homes, comprising 2, 3, 4 and 5 bed dwellings.
  • Of the 129 homes, 22 homes are proposed to be classified as affordable housing.
  • Tree lined avenues running through the development.
  • Retention of existing trees and landscape features and the introduction of significant landscaping to enhance the overall parkland setting of the development.
  • Retention of the local heritage assets, Hanstead House and garden and the Grade II listed, Yule Mausoleum as a focal point for the development.

The application reference is 5/2018/2118. You can view the application through St Albans City and District Council’s planning portal.

The scheme would deliver numerous benefits to the local community and St Albans City & District Council through the Government’s New Homes Bonus Scheme and a comprehensive Section 106 package comprising: Education, healthcare, childcare, greenspace, highways and public transport contributions.

In order to provide the community with an opportunity to view the proposals prior to submission of a reserved matters planning application, a public exhibition was held on Tuesday 3rd July 2018.
