Former Shredded Wheat Factory, Welwyn Garden City

Iceni is acting for Plutus Estates to secure a major redevelopment of a historically significant, former industrial site next to Welwyn Garden City Railway Station

Iceni is instructed to secure a major residential-led mixed-use redevelopment of the former Shredded Wheat Factory to the east of Welwyn Garden City railway station. With a challenging brief to preserve the most valued components of the historic fabric, remain true to Garden City principles with the scheme design and to optimise development capacity of the site through densification to enable significant affordable housing delivery, Iceni is required to deliver a planning permission that will meet the aspirations of our clients, the Local Planning Authority, the local community and Historic England.

A detailed planning application was submitted at the beginning of 2018 and in order to facilitate the commencement of on-site works beginning by Q3 2018, condition-precedent information has already been provided up front in respect of the first phase of development to enable early delivery.

The site is strategically important for the District given the scale of growth required and the extent of Green Belt review proposed to meet the District’s growth requirements.
