�2m grant for Hatfield homes scheme
MORE than �2m has been granted by a government agency to help build 49 affordable homes in Hatfield.
Welwyn Hatfield Council has secured a �1.66m grant from the Homes and Communities Agency (HCA) to enable 36 flats and houses to be built in Salisbury Village.
It follows an original donation of �550,000 by the HCA last month for the first 13 homes on the development.
Once built, the homes will be available for rent and shared ownership through the council’s Choice Based Lettings Scheme, for those on the housing waiting list.
The latest phase will consist of 18 one-bedroom flats, eight two-bedroom flats and three three-bedroom flats, as well as seven three-bedroom houses.
