Land at Hollybush Lane, Creswick, Welwyn Garden City
Application no. 6/2022/1375/MAJ
Hybrid Planning Application: Full planning permission for erection of 97 dwellings and outline planning permission for up to 243 dwellings.
The proposed development encroaches on open countryside between the built-up areas of Welwyn and Hatfield, and would contribute to the coalescence of these settlements in contravention of criteria for the Green Belt identified in the National Planning Policy Framework. Determination of this application would be premature in advance of the adoption of the emerging Local Plan.
