Welwyn Hatfield Borough Council has signed Lovell for a £45m redevelopment of the High View neighbourhood centre in Hatfield, Hertfordshire.

Planned High View neighbourhood centre in Hatfield

The mixed-use scheme will revitalise the centre originally built in the 1950s.

Work will now start on working up a detailed planning application for the phased redevelopment which follows extensive consultations with the local community.

The regeneration scheme will see 150 homes built, ranging from one-bedroom flats to three-bedroom houses.

There will also be a new shopping parade and improved access to the Jim McDonald Centre, a Council-owned community centre.  

Stephen Norton, Lovell regional regeneration director, said the firm would deliver significant job and training opportunities through the regeneration scheme, including eight apprenticeships as well as construction-related skills courses for residents and work experience placements.

Lovell will also provide Welwyn Hatfield Borough Council with a £50,000 community grant for the local High View community.

A planning application for the development is expected to be submitted in 2018 with the overall construction programme set to be completed in 2022.
