Stop the Clarendon Road 24 Storey Development

You may have had a letter informing you of a planning application for 50 Clarendon Road (the former TK Max building on the corner with St John’s Road). What may not have been clear is the developer now wants a 24 storey development at its highest point.

Many of you may remember our campaign against the 17 storey scheme here in 2017. Whilst some minor changes were made to protect the Estcourt Conservation Area it got permission. It was for 100 residential units and offices but reduced in height to 5 storeys at the rear of Estcourt Road.

Now the developer wants to go even higher. They want to increase the the residential units to 247 while reducing the offices and have done a re-design that includes a ‘residents park’ between the building and Estcourt Road. However my biggest objection is to the new TALL TOWER. This is just TOO MUCH! The developer claims this will help meet the Tory government ‘s housing targets for the Watford! A ridiculous target Mayor Peter Taylor and the Liberal Democrats are fighting against!

The developer is being greedy. They have permission for 17 storeys and we cannot stop that but we can stop it being 24!

Please sign our petition below and comment on the proposals online here, Application Number: 22/00484/FULM : 50 Clarendon Road Watford WD17 1TX


We the undersigned strongly object to the scale of this development rising to 24 storeys. This development will be overpowering to the Estcourt Conservation Area and will be detrimental to it.
