Investing in the Grange estate, Letchworth

Investing in the Grange estate, Letchworth

We have recently contacted residents and shopkeepers and asked them to share their views on investment in the Grange estate, specifically to homes and shops at Middlefield Court, The Parade and to Langleigh and Reynolds retirement living schemes.

Investing in homes

Our first priority at settle is to provide homes that are safe and comfortable for residents to live in. This includes meeting government requirements for the quality of homes we provide.

The existing properties in the areas mentioned are nearly 50 years old and in need of significant investment.

Over the coming years, to meet the standards required of landlords like settle we would need to update things including the windows, heating, electrics, roofing and insulation, as well as improving the communal areas and shop facilities. We will also need to replace kitchens and bathrooms in the homes we own.
We are now seeking views on potential investment and redevelopment in this area.

Proposed Plans

Colleagues from settle are in contact with the residents and shopkeepers to get their views on where they think investment is needed. We have welcomed comments and feedback and proposed plans and visuals have been drawn up by architects, which include these views.

We invite you to have a look at the Pelican Way proposed plans [PDF] and would be delighted to hear your feedback and other suggestions to help shape the investment we make in this area.

You can also view  a virtual exhibition at and leave any comments you wish to make. 

If you have any questions or would like to make suggestions, please send us an email and a member of our team will respond. You can also call Tim on 07938 378409 or the main office number 0330 343 0016.

Please continue to check this webpage for further updates on the proposed plans, visuals and exhibitions.
