Members of a planning committee refused a retrospective planning application last night (Thursday) for a house that has already been built.

Seven councillors, who sit on North Herts District Council’s Planning Control Committee, refused planning permission on a house built on land adjacent to Claypit Cottages in Luton Road, Offley.

Objections were made by Offley Parish Council and the homeowner of Claypit Cottages – the property closest to one of the new build homes – on grounds that the height of the buildings are affecting the levels of daylight and sunlight.

Members agreed to allow permission for plot A and C but said plot B should not be granted permission.

The application has been made by J J Kelly and Sons Ltd of Luton.
