Construction of two blocks consisting of 26 apartments, alterations to vehicular access, parking, landscaping and ancillary works following demolition of existing hotel building.
JB Planning Associates was successful in obtaining planning permission in October 2013 for this significant redevelopment project in Harpenden town centre. Whilst in a poor condition, the Glen Eagle Hotel was locally listed and within a conservation area.
JB Planning Associates identified and coordinated a team of consultants, including experts who prepared a Hotel Market Study that supported the principle of the proposed redevelopment. JB Planning Associates also worked closely with the project’s architect and were influential in selecting a neo-Georgian style that would complement the existing character and appearance of the conservation area.
