A huge new housing estate of 163 homes has been proposed for the old QEll hospital site.
Bellway Homes has applied to Welwyn Hatfield Council for approval of its more detailed plan, known as a reserved matters application, following the granting of outline permission.
Bellway wants to build 163 homes, of which 49 would be classed as affordable housing.
The privately-owned homes would include 42 four-bed houses and 30 three-bed houses, while the affordable homes would include 30 one-bed flats and 12 three-bed houses.
The affordable homes would be ‘tenure blind’, in other words indistinguishable from the private dwellings.
According to Bellway: “This development will reinvent the hospital site, which had little sense of an overall site masterplan and was dominated by roads and hard landscape.”
