More than 30 new homes, on the edge of WGC town centre, were officially opened by housing minister Grant Shapps.

The homes at Penn Way, off Broadwater Road are a mixture of houses and flats, with 10 being offered through Welwyn Hatfield Council’s choice based letting scheme.

The remaining 21 are being sold as shared ownership, with buyers purchasing normally around 50 to 75 per cent and paying subsidised rent on the remaining section.

At Penn Way the new one bedroom apartments start from £70,000 for a 50 per cent share.

Mr Shapps said: “It’s important to get the mix right between providing affordable homes to tackle the housing shortage with more private homes which make a development viable, so I am delighted to welcome the residents to their new homes at this fabulous development.”

Hightown Praetorian & Churches Housing Associatio’s chief executive, David Bogle, said: “We’re delighted to be involved with this new development in an excellent location in central WGC.

“This scheme provides much needed affordable housing to Welwyn Hatfield and gives people who have a real housing need the opportunity to get onto the property ladder.”

  • Overpriced and looks like an office block. Also, they start from £71,250 and offer poor value for money.
