Welwyn Hatfield's Development Management Committee, which decides the fate of planning applications, is now due to meet on Thursday 9th September 2021 to discuss the first of the Broadwater Road high rise developments. This will consider the proposed development on the BioPark site, which is planned to be densely packed apartment blocks up to 9 storeys in height.
Welwyn Garden City is facing a monstrous threat from the developers of the northern half of the Shredded Wheat site. They are trying to get permission for tower blocks of up to 10 storeys. Together with existing approved plans this would mean inserting around 4,000 new residents, virtually a whole new ward, and bring the population density to a level comparable to Manhattan! The plans completely ignore the SPD (Special Planning Document) created by the council as the definitive statement on the Shredded Wheat site.
