Welwyn Hatfied Local Plan – – – 18

Housing developments locally to Ellenbrook has been dismissed from the plan.


You may remember about 6 months ago Welwyn Hatfield called for more sites to be proposed to be considered for inclusion for housing development. As part of that process all of the original sites were resubmitted for consideration including four in the Ellenbrook area – Hat2 on the Aerodrome, Hat3 opposite Popefield Farm, Hat 4 Wilkins Green Lane and Hat19 off Bramble Road.

 I am delighted to see that none of the sites has been included in the new proposed list for development. Hat2/3/4 were all dismissed at the first sift of sites and Hat19 at the final sift.

 The new proposed list now goes to WHBC planning committee for discussion and approval (or not). As all our sites were dismissed, they will not be part of any discussion.
