Construction begins at Letchworth Garden City affordable housing project (GB)

First Garden Cities Homes and The Hill Group begin construction of 57 much-needed affordable homes off Icknield Way, Letchworth Garden City.


The former offices of Letchworth Garden City Heritage Foundation will be revitalized into a 100% affordable development featuring 31 shared ownership apartments and 26 allocated for social rent. The development will have five apartment buildings, up to four storeys in height, and an attractive green space for residents to relax and enjoy.


John Welch, Chief Executive at First Garden Cities Homes, comments: “First Garden Cities Homes and The Hill Group have a shared commitment to providing good-quality affordable housing for local communities. We are delighted to see work begin on site in what is an important new housing development for Letchworth Garden City and local residents.


Rob Jack, Regional Director at The Hill Group, comments: "Starting on site at this development marks the beginning of a major new project to bring vital, high-quality, affordable housing to Letchworth Garden City. The Hill Group is proud to continue its ongoing partnership with First Garden Cities Homes on housing delivery, and I’m confident this latest project will result in a high-quality and affordable development that not only addresses local housing needs but contributes to the ongoing design legacy of Letchworth Garden City."


Situated just a 15-minute walk from the station and town centre, the development offers convenient access to shops, cafés, and the beautiful art deco Broadway cinema as well as onward transport links. The partners anticipate completion of the project in early 2026.
