Regeneration of John Barker Place in Hitchin

We’re pleased to confirm that work has started on the development of the new homes and shops on the existing play area at the corner of John Barker Place and Mattocke Road.

The first two phases will include new homes for residents in Freemans Close and the nearby Westmill Lawns retirement complex, enabling them to continue living safely and comfortably in the area they’re familiar with.

Our new film marks the start of work on the development site. Bim Afolami, MP for Hitchin and Harpenden; Councillor Martin Stears-Handscomb, Leader of North Hertfordshire District Council and Hitchin Oughton Ward Councillor; and local resident, Jude, talk about the benefits the development will bring to the Westmill community.

You can also see a detailed overview of how the new buildings will look externally and internally when completed.
