Marshmoor, Welwyn Hatfield
Marshmoor offers an exciting opportunity to bring hi-tech enterprise and laboratory space to the village of Welham Green, drawing on the pioneering heritage of Welwyn Hatfield. The site, right next to Welham Green Railway Station, enjoys excellent access to public transport.
Our proposals are driven by a landscape-led masterplan, with existing landscape features retained, and enhanced, wherever possible.
On top of this, substantial areas of new tree planting are proposed within the scheme, enhancing the visual appearance of the site and providing a robust and improved landscaped buffer to Hatfield Park on one side, and the Great Northern Railway on the other.
The client is a long term stakeholder in the local area with an interest in enhancing it. Their aspiration is to create a high quality bioscience park which attracts higher education instituions and their offshoot enterprises in this field. These uses will serve to underpin the economic well-being of Welwyn Hatfield and wider Hertfordshire over and beyond the current local plan period, whilst also providing a small contribution to local housing needs.
