An application for 26 affordable houses at Northaw Park was submitted to Welwyn Hatfield Council in June 2019.
There are 50 homes in the area already and the proposed development will add 15 three-bedroom and 11 two-bedroom houses in response to the need for affordable housing in surrounding rural areas.
The dwellings are two-storey in scale and relatively low in density to reflect the site’s semi-rural location. They will be traditional in design and use of materials to sympathise with the local architectural character of Hook Lane and elsewhere in Northaw.
The applicant is Watford Community Housing, a Hertfordshire-based housing association whose priority is to provide better homes and friendlier communities.
