The first tenants have been welcomed into 18 two-bedroom flats provided at social rent and managed directly by the council.

A block of 12 modern one- bedroom flats, has also been acquired by the council's new housing company, Now Housing. 

This is the first development for the company, which aims to provide homes for households living or working within Welwyn Hatfield, who are struggling to afford market rent prices, but who are not a high priority for council housing.
