Get involved in our consultation on Letchworth’s proposed housing development

Letchworth Garden City Heritage Foundation launched a consultation between Autumn 2018 and the end of December 2018, to find out what mattered to the community in relation to the future growth of Letchworth. Following comprehensive engagement via pop-up events, surgeries, focus groups and surveys, the feedback was analysed and published in a report which is available on our website. This feedback highlighted the key areas of concern to the community and helped shape the focus of the next stage of the consultation.

Phase two of the consultation is now underway and we’re continuing the conversation, encouraging people to get involved and tell us their views. This time, we’re focussing discussion on the two largest proposed housing sites for Letchworth in the North Herts Local Plan; land north of the Grange Estate, known as LG1, and land east of Talbot Way and Kristiansand Way, known as LG3. We’re inviting further engagement on key areas for consideration, such as transport, traffic control, access and ecology.
