A fantastic result last night as Welwyn Hatfield Borough Council voted overwhelmingly to grant planning permission for the Wheat Quarter and MHT development in the heart of Welwyn Garden City. Entran have been delighted to work with Collado Collins and Iceni Projects on this genuinely exciting regeneration scheme that will deliver 1500 new homes, preserve the Grade II listed art-deco Production Hall, provide a new civic building, employment space, wellness centre, International Art Centre and a high quality landscaping scheme that covers 60% of the site. The development will fund significant local highway improvements, greatly enhancing facilities for pedestrians and cyclists, and the site will accommodate some 1800 cycle parking spaces and an innovative electric vehicle car club. There's a lot of work to be done to deliver the scheme but last night's resolution was a real mile-stone in WGC's future. https://thewheatquarter.co.uk/

The Government has published a 2 year action plan to improve safety for vulnerable road users. Motorcycle groups are disappointed that they are not included in the description of vulnerable users but Brake and Living Streets welcome the 50 new measures. The plan will also assess whether insurance companies could offer discounts to drivers who have undertaken cycle training. www.gov.uk/government/new-measures-to-keep-people-safe-on-the-roads
