Land North East of Welwyn Garden City

Mariposa Investments and Homes England (formerly the Homes & Communities Agency) have submitted an outline planning application for Land North East of Welwyn Garden City.

The planning application can be viewed here using 6/2018/0873/OUTLINE as the reference.

The site is identified in the emerging Local Plan as a strategic non-green belt site allocated for residential development for approximately 650 homes.

Mariposa Investments & Homes England’s vision is to create a sustainable, high-quality place to live, invoking Garden City principles, and a neighbourhood that provides for the everyday needs of the new community and improves service provision for existing nearby local residents.

We have previously held three rounds of public consultation to inform local people and gain feedback.

 “As part of the process of preparing a planning application, we have been advised by the Historic Environment Team at Hertfordshire County Council to undertake trial trenching, to identify any potential archaeological interests on the site. The trial trenching is being undertaken by a team of professionals and has been approved and is being overseen by the Hertfordshire Historic Environment Team. The trial trenching will be undertaken over a period of approximately three weeks.”
