New council homes
We are working hard to build new affordable homes for tenants. In October 2012, councillors gave the go-ahead to build the first new council homes in the borough for 25 years.
We've recently completed five new developments, including 26 homes at Farm Place, Berkhamsted, nine two-bedroom flats at St Peters Court, Gadebridge, and a 41-bedroom state-of-the-art homeless hostel at The Elms, Redbourn Road. We’re making sure that all developments are designed to high standards and constructed in an eco-friendly way to reduce energy bills for future tenants.
We've also got five more developments yet to be completed, including the former site of Martindale School in Hemel Hempstead.
A new strategy to build at least 300 new homes between 2013 and 2020 was launched in November 2013.
We are proud to be a member of the Association for Environment Conscious Building. All new housing developments will meet excellent energy efficiency standards.
