Whiteway, Letchworth Garden City

Much of the site is at high risk of flooding meaning that the development had to be carefully designed to incorporate SuDS, whilst adhering to the Garden City design principles. Careful design and proactive engagement with council officers resulted in a spacious scheme of detached and semi-detached houses with landscaped frontages and an attractive area of open space at the heart of the site, providing opportunities for native planting, ecological enhancements and landscaped drainage features. On completion of the development, 100% of the properties will be provided as affordable homes for rent by Letchworth Garden City based housing association, settle. The proposed development was unanimously approved by the North Herts District Council Planning Committee on 15th October.
