Waters Garage, Hertford

Forge Design Studio have been commissioned by Waters End Limited to develop proposals for the redevelopment of an extremely constrained site in Hertford. The site is a former Garage showroom and sales forecourt, which has been redundant for over 5 years and is now a blot on an otherwise vibrant area of the Town. It is a complex site with numerous constraints, situated on the edge of a Conservation Area in the Town Centre, forming a highly visible peninsula between North Road and the dual-carriageway to the south.

It is proposed to create a mixed-use scheme with a B1 Office building on the apex of the site, new build, high-density housing and the renovation and retention of the former Coachworks building to form a unique Mews courtyard. The project is currently at the pre-application stage. The team is working closely with the Local Authority to develop a viable and attractive scheme, which will unlock the potential of the site. A final resolution on the current planning application is expected early in 2015.
