This project is for a mix of about 75 private and affordable homes on a site lying on the south side of Welham Green, a village located a few miles to the south of Hatfield in Hertfordshire. The 4ha (10 acre) site is being promoted through the Welwyn Hatfield Borough Council emerging Local Plan, which is currently at Examination in Public. The site has been assessed as being suitable, available and deliverable in the draft Local Plan. The Local Plan Examination is due to be completed later in 2019.
Welham Green is fine and a prosperous village, which has the second largest industrial area in the District. There are therefore good levels of employment and associated retail and support services available. The village is well served by public transport, with a railway station on the East Coast Main Line that runs directly into King’s Cross and Moorgate and it has good and frequent bus services.
The village is also infamous as being the place where the first passenger hot air balloon crash-landed in the UK in 1784, on its maiden voyage from central London.
