David Lock Associates has drawn up plans for a new ‘garden suburb’ extending Welwyn Garden City
The studio’s ‘Birchall Garden Suburb’ visioning statement and masterplan was influenced by Ebenezer Howard’s and Louis de Soissons’ original 1920s designs for the city.
The masterplan features a large landscaped area outdoor alongside 2,500 new homes. The scheme includes a park, wildlife corridor and tree-lined streets in a bid to increase biodiversity.
Direct public transport and cycle routes would link the development to the existing Welwyn Garden Suburb district.
