“The advantages of the most energetic and active town life, with all the beauty and delight of the country, may be secured in perfect combination”

Ebenezer Howard

Metropolitan Thames Valley Housing (MTVH) is pleased to present its revised plans for the delivery of 630 high quality homes as part of a vibrant and sustainable new neighbourhood in the heart of Welwyn Garden City.

MTVH originally submitted an application in February 2021 but since then have reflected upon the comments of the local community and stakeholders. We have responded to the comments in the following way.

The above images show how we have responded to comments and reduced the heights across the scheme

When Ebenezer Howard founded Welwyn Garden City in 1920, his ambition was to create a thriving sustainable community with plentiful green space and landscaped streets. Our development has been inspired by this ethos. The revised South Side development of the former Shredded Wheat Factory will deliver much needed homes in a sustainable, landscape-led design.

The revised plans that MTVH are now proposing include:

630 new homes

for Welwyn Garden City, helping
to meet housing need

A minimum of 286 affordable homes

delivered at the start of
the development

Well-designed scheme

which takes cues from the local architectural style

Range of apartment sizes

for Welwyn Garden City, helping to meet local housing need

Private amenity space

for every apartment, including gardens, balconies and roof terraces

Extensive landscaping

and green space to provide outdoor space for everyone

Greatly improved access

linking the Centre and the east of Welwyn Garden City

Sustainable development

that prioritises energy efficiency and environmentally friendly transport choices

Secure cycle parking

A minimum of 630 cycle parking spaces
