A collection of abandoned pig sheds in a conservation area could be demolished if plans to build nine new houses in Ashwell get the go-ahead.

Oakbridge Homes Ltd has revealed it hopes to build six three-bedroom and three four-bedroom houses on land between Ashwell Street and Station Road, and has submitted a planning application to North Herts District Council.

Under the plans a collection of abandoned pig sheds, which are located at the site, would be demolished in order to build the new homes.

In Oakbridge Home’s planning statement it says that “the design and landscaping of the site has been carefully considered to ensure that the character of the conservation area is preserved”.

To have your say, go to north-herts.gov.uk/home/planning/planning-applications and search for 18/01874/FP. The neighbour consultation is open until Friday, while the standard consultation ends on Tuesday, August 28.
