to our website which explains our improved and community focused approach to the regeneration of the Shredded Wheat Factory.


Welwyn and Hatfield Borough Council granted planning consent for a complete transformation and regeneration of the site in February 2019.

At the same time, the owners undertook previously approved demolition work to prepare the site for redevelopment. This sensitive work exposed just how poorly the Listed Buildings had been maintained by the prior owners, and how big the challenge of regeneration truly was.

Now, in 2020, the owners of The Wheat Quarter (the land to the north of Hyde Way) have critically reviewed their portion of the 2019 planning consent and are working with the Council to refine and revise the regeneration proposals and create a scheme that better meets the needs of the local community.

These new proposals create new homes for rent, new homes for later living, and still offer new homes for sale, all alongside the fully refurbished Art Deco Shredded Wheat Buildings. You can find out more about this on our website.
