Allow the re-instatement of the close boarded fence at Whitehall, along School Lane in Hartford. Either full height or reduced height, in addition to the wire mesh.
Why is this important?
The close board wooden fence, which we were forced to remove by the council, allowed us the privacy that we need as a family. It also provided a barrier from the noise of the very busy main road, School Lane. The building and gardens are no longer commercial offices. They are used as a family home, so we need the appropriate boundaries in place to stop trespassers and keep us safe. We believe that the fence was in keeping with the rest of village and did not adversely affect the setting of the listed building. The wire mesh alone is not sufficient and very ugly (see photo). It is not possible to plant behind it due to the large amount of tree roots.
How it will be delivered
Submit to the council with a new planning application.
