Several newer housing estates have been added to Letchworth since its inception.
To the north of Letchworth The Grange began construction in 1947 and to the south east Jackmans was built from 1961. These were council or municipal housing estates with many residents originally coming from the London overspill. Two more private estates, Lordship and Manor Park were built from in 1971 to the south west of Letchworth.
Smaller areas of housing also appeared in the 1990s, particularly on land adjacent to Jackmans Estate on the sites of a former creamery and the Willian Secondary School, which had closed in 1991 when school rolls in the town had begun to drop.
Willian School, along with two primary schools had been built as part of the Jackmans Estate, which was constructed with not only its own schools, but also shops, library, community centre, sheltered housing, and public house. Bordered by major roads this almost self-contained community developed a reputation as being slightly cut off from the rest of the town and tends to be overlooked in most studies of Letchworth Garden City development.
The Letchworth Garden City estate began to turn a healthy profit in the 1970s, leading to investment in a number of town amenities. These were a working farm, Standalone Farm, in 1980, a leisure centre and a theatre named Plinston Hall in 1982, a free hospital called the Ernest Gardiner Day Hospital in 1984, and major refurbishment of the towns cinema and shopping centre in 1996 and 1997. A further major programme to improve and update facilities in Letchworth town centre, entirely funded by the Foundation, began in 2009.
In 2011 the first George Orwell Festival was held in Letchworth and Wallington, the nearby village where George Orwell lived from 1936 until 1940 and then intermittently until 1947. It was where he wrote some of his most famous books, essays, reviews, diaries and letters, and where he developed many of the ideas leading to his greatest two novels, Animal Farm and Nineteen Eighty Four. There was a further festival in 2012.
