Welwyn Garden City
The development, by Chalkdene Limited, is a joint venture between Herts Living and Morgan Sindall Investments to deliver new homes within Hertfordshire.
With an existing outline consent granted in 2017, the detailed design and Reserved Matters application to Welwyn Hatfield Borough Council sees 21 houses organised either side of the entrance road in 2 cul-de-sacs. The landscape uses a shared-surface to improve and prioritise the character of the development and incorporates a footpath access through the site with a small wooded copse area to the north and landscaped swale to the south.
The style of the houses is traditional with clipped, contemporary detail. The simple palette of materials, well-proportioned windows and recessed porches provides clean lines and simple geometry. The collection of houses and their individual differences aims to ensure they all address the new ‘streets’ and reinforce a sense of place within the new development.
