Plans to build 30 homes in Welwyn Garden City have been submitted to the borough council.

A developer wants to construct 30 residential apartments – a mixture of one-bed and two-beds – in two blocks on green space off Chequersfield.

The application by Taylor Wimpey states that 33.3 per cent will be affordable provision, and will border another one of its developments to the south, which was built nine years ago.

There will also be layered planting to remain in keeping with garden city principles, and the site would be served by a single-vehicular access from Chequersfield along the southern boundary.

Developers said in the application: “The site is a windfall site, which is currently of poor and unkempt appearance, and the delivery of 30 much-needed, well-designed new homes in a sympathetic architectural style will hugely improve its appearance.”
