Welwyn Hatfield Council is redeveloping two council-owned garage blocks in Little Mead as part of its affordable housing programme.

The former garages both had flats above, but they had significant maintenance issues due to the poor design and construction.

FSG Property Services were appointed to build four three-bedroom and three two-bedroom houses on the site.

Construction is due to be completed this autumn.

The houses will be available to residents on the council’s housing needs register.

Executive member for housing and community, councillor Nick Pace, said: “The work follows the completion of seven new homes in Lilac Close, 22 flats in Lime Tree Court last year and we are also on site with 16 flats at Northdown Road.”

The affordable housing programme has delivered over 200 new homes to date.
