Policy SP15 of our Local Plan sets out a number of specific requirements for the site.

These include:

  • preparation of a Strategic Masterplan for the whole allocation
  • sensitive integration with the existing settlement
  • primary education provision
  • a local centre to provide shops, a GP facility and other facilities
  • plots for self build
  • provision of a care home
  • additional planting and retention of existing trees


The landowners - Letchworth Garden City Heritage Foundation - have prepared a draft masterplan for the site. Consultation on the masterplan, including a public exhibition at the Grange Academy, took place from 8 February to 26 March 2024.

Further information is available on a dedicated website.

Next steps

Following the consultation, the masterplan is being finalised. It is expected to be presented to councillors in 2024.
