The High View SPD

The SPD expands upon policy H1 of the Welwyn Hatfield District Plan (2005) which identified High View as a housing site that would be suitable for mixed use development including housing, retailing, services and community facilities.

In the document it establishes the type, amount and mix of development that should be delivered at High View and sets out the proposed layout for the site, in addition to providing guidance on design and sustainability initiatives. Any development on this site should be brought forward in line with the SPD, which is now a material planning consideration against which any planning application for the site will be determined.
