Developers Lovell Homes hosted the event at The Hive to show off the development plans for Hatfield Rise in High View to residents and potential buyers. 

Cllr Richard Griffiths, Mayor of Hatfield Town Council, was on hand to view the plans and scale model of the development, which he admitted left him ‘impressed’. 

“The scale model shows that the development is being constructed to a high standard,” he said.

“I was particularly impressed to learn that facilities to connect a high number of charging points can be made available for electric vehicles.” 

Developed in partnership between Welwyn Hatfield Borough Council and Lovell Homes, the regeneration will see 72 homes built in the first phase, include 37 affordable homes.
