New council homes
We're working hard to build new affordable homes in Dacorum. A new strategy to build at least 300 new homes between 2013 and 2020 was launched in November 2013.
We're proud to be a member of the Association for Environment Conscious Building (AECB). All new housing developments will meet excellent energy efficiency standards.
Homes in development
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 held a consultation event for local residents on 20 July 2017 where we presented the Martindale Public Consultation Boards (PDF 4MB), which have information about the proposed plans and the changes we have made since our first consultation event.
We have now completed the Flood Risk Assessment and Transport Assessment, and submitted an application for planning permission.
We hope to start the main construction of this development in 2018.
Kylna Court, Maylands
This site is former industrial land in Maylands Avenue, Hemel Hempstead.
This will consist of 79 one- and two-bedroom flats for social rent. The ground floor will provide additional business offices to the Maylands Business Centre.
We have installed a time lapse camera on the site so that we can share the progress of this development.
Jarvis Contracting Ltd, the main builder, has begun work on site. We are currently constructing the concrete frame and floors. The project is expected to be complete in late autumn 2018.
Stationers Place, Apsley
This project will consist of 31 one- and two-bedroom flats for social rent. The development is next to the old Apsley paper mill buildings and the canal.
Jarvis Contracting Ltd has been appointed as the main contractor on this project and they are currently liaising with the Environment Agency who are responsible for the canal and lock at the rear of the site.
This is to establish an agreed process to open up the culvert that runs under the end of the site. Once the detail of this work has been agreed, we will move forward with the development.
Swing Gate Lane, Berkhamsted
This development 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.
Planning permission was awarded and construction started in June 2017. The homes will be finished by late summer 2018.
Industrial action is being taken by members of Unite The Union and Unison. This may affect council services over the Easter Holiday and weeks thereafter. Residents are asked to place their bins out as usual on their scheduled collection day. Residents can check on our website or follow us on social media for regular updates. We will do our best to maintain essential services and minimise disruption as far as possible. We apologise in advance for any disruption caused. ×
