PLANS to build 10 homes in the centre of Buntingford have been labelled as over-development by the town council.
The scheme comprises four flats, a cottage, five houses, and a carport for 10 cars, after demolishing existing buildings.
Town council members also say car parking provision would be insufficient.
The Buntingford Civic Society also believes parking is inadequate and would be likely to overspill into Baldock Road.

A planning report to the committee recommended the scheme should be approved.

The report said the proposals represented an "acceptable use" of the site, and met the "aims and objectives" of planning policy.
But the district council was likely to insist that there should be a survey on the site of bat breeding activity, and use by owls.
