The East Hertfordshire Local Plan, adopted in October 2018 allocates this area of the Garden Town for the proposed new development.
The land is owned and controlled by two landowners – Places for People own the majority of the allocated land, which will accommodate 8,500 new homes. City and Provincial (or Briggins Estate) own the south western area of the allocated land, which will accommodate 1,500 new homes.
Places for People have submitted an outline planning application to East Herts Council for the 8,500 new homes proposed on the land they own and control. The application is currently being reviewed and considered by officers and consultees.
