Watford Junction Draft Development Brief 2016

Watford Junction Draft Development Brief

Representation ID: 449

Received: 02/09/2016

Respondent: Network Rail

Representation Summary:

Network Rail would comment as follows:

Network Rail supports the principal of a council led regional regeneration proposal as previous commercially led property developer proposals made to Network Rail have appeared unviable. The masterplan includes railway operational land which Network Rail recognises may need reconfiguration and protection as part of a council sponsored scheme. If the council proceeds to use CPO powers to enable the masterplan then, as is normal procedure, Network Rail may object to the CPO seeking a Deed of Undertaking whereby the objection is withdrawn in return for the council's agreement to necessary railway protections.

Watford - Draft Watford Junction Development Brief



Thank you for the opportunity to provide feedback to the proposed policy.



Network Rail is the public owner and operator of Britain's railway infrastructure, which includes the tracks, signals, tunnels, bridges, viaducts, level crossings and stations - the largest of which we also manage. All profits made by the company, including from commercial development, are reinvested directly back into the network.

Additionally, on land beside the car park owned by HSBC Pensions Network Rail are aware that there may be an upcoming planning application. Network Rail would ask the LPA to notify us of any such proposal to determine if the proposal is consistent with Watford's masterplan and the access the masterplan offers the station.
Please ensure that the notification is sent to the usual planning application address - TownPlanningLNW@networkrail.co.uk
