Environment and Heritage

We work closely with residents, businesses and others to help retain the special character of the Garden City, with its signature green open spaces, tree-lined streets and maintained parks and gardens.

Our Heritage Advisory Team offer advice and guidance to residents looking to make changes to the outside of their properties. They are on-hand to talk homeowners through applications under Letchworth’s Scheme of Management and Leasehold Covenants.

We created and maintain Letchworth’s 13.6-mile countryside route, the Garden City Greenway, linking nature spots and country parks around the town. Our Greenway Ranger works in all weathers to make sure footpaths, bridleways and permissive routes are maintained for the walkers, runners, cyclists and horse riders who use it.
