Entech House, Woolmer Green

Entech House - London Road - Woolmer Green - Knebworth - Hertfordshire - SG3 6JR

We have received planning permission for a mixed use scheme in Woolmer Green Village on the site of Entech House. 

  • Overview


    We have received planning permission to bring forward a mixed use scheme including retail, office space and new homes on the site of Entech House in Woolmer Green Village.

    Our scheme will create a high quality, sustainable development that can fulfil the local need for affordable and private market housing whilst respecting the character of the surrounding area.

    We held a public consultation on the 8th March 2017 at Woolmer Green Hall and invited local residents to come and view the proposals, speak to the team and provide feedback.

    If you would like to view the exhibition boards displayed at the consultation event, please click here.

    The comments we received from local residents helped us to refine our plans before we submitted a planning application to Welwyn and Hatfield Borough Council in April 2017. Our initial planning application was refused and we submitted a revised application on 17th November 2017. This application was also refused. After an appeal with the Secretary of State, our planning application received approval on 26th October 2018.
