Developing a highly sustainable new garden village in Hertsmere

Our role

  • The Tyttenhanger Estate represents an opportunity to develop a highly sustainable new garden village community in a key strategic location within the borough of Hertsmere on the site of previously used Green Belt land. 
  • The new community proposals will comprise a sustainable mixed-use new settlement of up to 6,000 new homes (4,000 homes within the plan period) and a country park.
  • Turley submitted proposals for the settlement including a comprehensive vision document.
  • We were appointed in 2017, providing planning, design, sustainability and economics advice throughout each stage of the emerging Hertsmere Local Plan.


  • The strategic scale and location of the settlement allows for the development to bring significant new employment opportunities to the area.
  • The strategic scale proposed will also fully provide for its own community needs and facilities, including primary and secondary schools, sports provision, meeting halls, doctors’ surgeries, clinics and new shops.
  • Urban & Civic have completed a Development Management Agreement with the Tyttenhanger Estate covering over 2,000 acres of land to the immediate north of junction 22 to the M25.
  • Tyttenhanger remains the only substantial site currently identified by Hertsmere Council in their latest “Planning For Growth” consultation document (October 2018) suitable for a strategic new settlement in the district, capable of accommodating over 4,000 new dwellings and strategic new employment opportunities (4,000 new jobs).
