An update on our plans for March Hare homes

23 Mar 2017

Dozens of people got in touch for a consultation this month on our plans for 15 new council homes on the site of the former March Hare pub. 26 people visited our drop-in sessions at The Hydeout Centre, in The Hyde, and 10 more responses came in through our Facebook page.

We plan to build council homes on the site, to make them affordable for Stevenage people. Parking will be included in the development.

Most people were supportive of the scheme but some had concerns about cost, parking and being overlooked. These will be fed back to the architect, after we have consulted our agent and selected builder.

A planning application is to be submitted in late spring, and once we have planning permission we will be getting straight on with the build. The contractor has been identified already and new homes will hopefully be completed early next year.
