Plan to turn former Welwyn Garden City care home into new homes

A former care home in Welwyn Garden City may be redeveloped into new homes.
Hertfordshire County Council wants to turn the combined site of First House and Hyde Valley House on Hyde Valley into up to 13 properties, proposing seven two-bed houses, four three-bed houses and two one-bed maisonettes.
The vacant site was last used as a care home before its residents were relocated to a larger facility at Anson Court in Panshanger.
An application for outline planning permission has been submitted to Welwyn Hatfield Council on behalf of the County Council, which owns the properties.
The finer points of the development will be dealt with in future applications, if outline planning permission is granted.
Development of between 14 and 17 units at the site was originally considered, with the number reduced to allow for more parking and garden area.
