Up to 164 new homes set for former aerospace site?

PROPOSALS to build 164 homes in Hatfield will be decided by councillors tonight (Thursday).

Welwyn Hatfield Council’s planning control committee will determine a joint application from Taylor Wimpey and Bovis Homes to develop vacant land on the town’s former British Aerospace site.

The plans, if approved, would incorporate a selection of properties, including one and two-bedroom flats and three, four and five-bedroom houses.

A total of 297 parking spaces, including garages, would also be provided at the site, which is bordered by Mosquito Way and Parkhouse Court.

Council officers are recommending the application be approved.

The site is one of 81 brownfield locations in the borough the council has deemed suitable for housing development, as reported in last week’s WHT.
