A FORMER mayor said plans to change a former health centre into a nursery may create traffic and parking problems.

Geraldine Corry spoke about the Victory Road plan at a meeting of Berkhamsted Town Council on Monday.

She said: “This building has been empty for over 18 months. It does not make the road look very attractive.”

She said staff at the disused Victory Road clinic were moved to one in Gossoms End – but still use their old car park.

She said: “We have a tremendous amount of traffic, and it’s beginning to make Station Road look very quiet.”

She raised concerns about the development’s impact on traffic, parking, emergency access to the road, pollution, noise and invasion of privacy.

The council agreed to register concerns over the first three issues with town planners.
