New council homes
We're working hard to build new affordable homes in Dacorum. A strategy to build at least 300 new homes between 2013 and 2020 was launched in November 2013 and we are on track to deliver this.
Our Housing Development team have been shortlisted for the Best Development Team at the 2018 Inside Housing Development Awards. The awards ceremony will take place in London on 29 November 2018.
Homes in development
Kylna Court, Maylands
This site is former industrial land, once known as Wood House, in Maylands Avenue, Hemel Hempstead.
This will consist of 79 one- and two-bedroom flats for social rent. Part of the ground floor will provide additional business offices to the Maylands Business Centre.
We have installed a live feed camera on the site so that we can share the progress of this development. And you can also see how things have taken shape over time by watching the time lapse video.
Jarvis Contracting Ltd, the main builder, began work on site last year. The concrete frame and floors have been constructed and we are now working on the internal and external finishes. The project is expected to be complete in November 2018.
Corn Mill Court, Berkhamsted
This development in Swing Gate Lane, Berkhamsted, will consist of six one-bedroom and three two-bedroom flats.
In addition, there are buildings to one side of the site, which will be retained and converted into housing.
Construction started in June 2017 and the homes will be finished in early 2019.
Former Martindale School site, Hemel Hempstead
The site of this former primary school in Boxted Road will provide around 66 new homes.
We're hoping to build a total of 19 one- and two-bedroom flats for social rent, plus 47 two- and three-bedroom houses for a mix of rent and market sale.
We have appointed Bugler Group as the contractors for this development and they will start the main construction of this development in winter 2018.

This project will consist of 29 one- and two-bedroom flats for social rent. The development is next to the old Apsley Paper Mill buildings and the canal.
