Herts CC gives consent to Shredded Wheat Factory scheme

Shredded Wheat scheme

Joint venture partners ZM Land & Capital and Metropolitan Thames Valley have secured planning approval for a 1m sq ft mixed-use scheme including 1,440 flats in place of the former Shredded Wheat Factory in Welwyn Garden City, Hertfordshire.

Known as the Wheat Quarter, the 24-acre site will also feature 150,000 sq ft of commercial space following approval by Hertfordshire County Council. The vast scheme, located next to Welwyn Garden City train station, will include the restoration of a series of Art Deco buildings originally constructed in the 1920s to house Nabisco’s Shredded Wheat factory.
