Urban&Civic has been selected by Hertfordshire County Council as the master developer for the £500m Baldock North Urban Extension Project.
The project will see up to 3,300 homes delivered by the partnership, together with commercial uses and associated infrastructure, including new schools and a country park.
Scott Crudgington, Director of Resources at Hertfordshire County Council, said: “We’re delighted to be working with Urban&Civic on this exciting urban extension scheme that will deliver much-needed new homes in Baldock. We have an ambitious sustainability agenda in Hertfordshire, and importantly for us, this isn’t just about building houses. We want to create sustainable communities with the infrastructure to support them, where people can live, work and travel in active and sustainable ways.”
The appointment was through a competitive dialogue process managed on the Council’s behalf by Carter Jonas’ Strategic Land team and with legal advice from Sharpe Pritchard.
Robert Smith, Head of the National Strategic Land at Carter Jonas commented: “The proposed partnership allows the Council to generate long term, sustainable financial receipts, have an active role in design and development of the urban extension and work with a leading operator in this field.”
