Planning permission approved for Phase 3 at John Barker Place

Phase 2 of development at John Barker Place

We’re delighted that final planning permission has been approved for Phase 3 of the development at John Barker Place in Westmill, Hitchin.

The development of 48 new affordable homes will be a mixture of social rent and shared ownership homes on the site of Freemans Close.

We will keep local residents updated on the programme and when we hope to progress.

We are currently working with Lovell Partnerships to complete Phase 2 of the development which will include 48 new homes – 24 for social rent and 22 for shared ownership, with planned completion in early 2025.

Work to start on path & lay-by at Kingfisher House

Work will start on the new lay-by on Mattocke Road outside Kingfisher House and on the new footpath at the front of Kingfisher House on Monday, 8 April. Work will be carried out in both areas simultaneously with an estimated completion time of around three weeks.

Access will remain in place to the shop and takeaway via the block paved area which will also accommodate scooters and wheelchairs while the old footpath is dug up and replaced.
