Letchworth Garden City Heritage Foundation has worked alongside the Nexxus Corporation to draw up plans to demolish the dilapidated former residential skill centre in Pixmore Avenue.

Their plans have been submitted to North Herts District Council and the earliest date for a decision on them is June 23.

If the plans are accepted, the building will be torn down and be replaced with around 250 two and three-storey dwellings.

The development, which will also see the infrastructure of the site improved, will be supported by improved footpaths and two access roads leading from the new buildings to Pixmore Avenue.

Over 140 residents close to the proposed development are being consulted on the scheme.
