New family homes for Welwyn Garden City

New family homes for Welwyn Garden City

New family homes are set to be built in Welwyn Garden City as part of a long-term programme to deliver much-needed housing across Hertfordshire.

Welwyn Hatfield Borough Council has approved plans from Chalkdene Developments LLP for 21 new homes on land at Waterbeach, Bericot Way. The scheme will consist of two, three and four-bedroom properties, six of which will be affordable family homes.

The high-quality development has been specifically designed to complement the surrounding area, with large windows to provide well-lit, comfortable and contemporary living spaces.

The site is the first to be delivered by Chalkdene Developments, which is a 50-50 joint venture created last year between Morgan Sindall Investments and Herts Living Ltd to develop vital new homes across the county, on underutilised and surplus brownfield sites.

Ben Harrop, general manager at Chalkdene Developments, said: “This is an important milestone for the partnership, and we’re thrilled to be able to start construction of our first new high-quality homes. The scheme will deliver sustainable, modern and distinctive new properties in a prime part of Welwyn Garden City that is ideal for family living.”

Work on site is expected to begin in October this year, with the first houses due to be completed in the summer of 2020.

Chalkdene Developments plans to launch the first homes for sale in February 2020.
