We've submitted a planning application for much-needed social housing in Tring.

The application is to build 11 new homes on Bulbourne Road outside Tring. The development will be subject to Tring Town Council’s final approval to the sale of the land.

The 11 new homes will consist of two- and three-bedroom detached properties and a small terrace of houses. The homes will be located behind a row of trees, near to Tring Garden Centre. They will sit near the existing allotments and will include a new parking area for the allotments.

The proposed plans include private gardens, solar PV panels, high levels of thermal insulation, while heating is provided by individual air source heat pumps. Every house will have its own EV charging point and private parking bay. There will be a three-bedroom wheelchair-accessible home that will be adaptable to the changing demands of residents.

The design of the development sits back from the main road and provides a soft transition into the surrounding landscape and field.

Cllr Margaret Griffiths, Portfolio Holder for Housing Services, said: “Many residents are priced out of living in their local areas making it so important that we provide affordable housing options to enable these communities to continue to thrive. If we get the green light for this new development, it will enable us to provide much-needed affordable homes to residents in Tring and will help us to meet local housing needs. These new builds will be high-quality homes that people will be proud to live in.”

All the homes will be available for social rent through our housing register.

We are continuing to deliver new council homes for social rent in the borough. Find out more about our new builds.
