Saunders achieve planning for a contemporary YMCA Hostel in Welwyn Garden City

21-06-2021

A new One YMCA Hostel is to be built in the centre of Welwyn Garden City. With 100 bedrooms, the new building will deliver individual studio rooms for residents with their own kitchen, bathroom and bedroom, alongside communal facilities and a garden. There will also be staff offices and training spaces.
The approved hybrid planning submission also includes an outline proposal for a private residential development which will fund and ultimately facilitate the new hostel.

Project Director, Michael Burton said: ‘This is a wonderful opportunity to provide a unique YMCA facility which will enhance the site and deliver much needed new homes.’
Work is due to start onsite at the end of this year or early 2022.
