Redevelopment of 3-5 Newells in Letchworth

We recently invited local residents to a community event to see proposed plans for the development of properties 3, 4 and 5, Newells on the Jackmans estate in Letchworth Garden City.

Our commitment at settle is to work with partners to provide good quality homes and services that respond to the needs of our residents, along with investing in neighbourhoods and communities.


The three properties are currently empty, and we are now exploring the opportunity to develop the existing three-bedroom properties into a three-storey building, of 15 one and two-bedroom apartments for affordable rent whilst retaining communal, green space.

Our plans may also include the remodelling of the garage blocks to the left of the properties at Newells.

Vehicle, cycle and pedestrian access will be retained to serve the nearby allotments, and the Greenway respectively.


With a clear commitment to invest in sustainable homes and neighbourhoods, we will use this opportunity to work with construction partners on this development to ensure these new homes are energy efficient.

We are in the process of developing the building design. We hope that this consultation will feed into this process, helping shape the detail before a planning application is submitted.

With the timescale for submission of a full planning application yet to be determined, we are hopeful that works will commence on site in 2022.

Please have a look at our proposed plans and if you have any questions or would like to make suggestions regarding the redevelopment, please email newells@settlegroup.org.uk or call us and a member of our team will get back to you.
