New council homes
We're working hard to build new affordable homes in Dacorum. In October 2012, councillors gave the go-ahead to build the first new council homes in the borough for 25 years.
We've already completed several new developments, including homes for social rent in Berkhamsted, Tring and Hemel Hempstead, as well as a 41-bedroom state-of-the-art homeless hostel at The Elms, Redbourn Road, Hemel Hempstead. We’re making sure that all these properties are designed to high standards and constructed in an eco-friendly way to reduce energy bills for future tenants.
We've also got other developments yet to be completed, including 79 homes in Maylands, Hemel Hempstead and 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're proud to be a member of the Association for Environment Conscious Building. All new housing developments will meet excellent energy efficiency standards.
