We have marked the completion of 10 new council homes in Kings Langley in partnership with Bugler Developments
The homes are a mixture of two- and three-bedroom houses, providing much-needed housing for social rent to applicants on Dacorum’s housing register. The homes back on to open fields and are designed to complement the existing neighbouring properties.
They are also energy efficient, featuring solar panels and increased insulation to the fabric above the current building regulation requirements. In addition, each home has an electric vehicle charging point and private parking space.
Councillors, members of our housing team and representatives from Bugler Developments attended the traditional ribbon-cutting ceremony on Friday 23 September to mark the completion of the homes.
Andy Bugler, Bugler Group CEO, said: “The 10 new affordable homes are the latest in a series of completed projects for Dacorum Borough Council. Together we have a strong partnership and are delivering affordable homes of a high standard for the
Dacorum community. We wish the new residents many happy years in their new homes, and it was good to celebrate alongside them.”
Cllr Alan Anderson, our Portfolio Holder for Place, said: “Along with Deputy Mayor Cllr Alan Johnson, this is a development we are particularly proud of as these are the first new council homes to be built in our Kings Langley ward since the early
1980s. We are continuing to build new homes throughout the borough to support those in housing need and have plans in place to deliver 350 new homes between 2020 and 2025.”
Cllr Margaret Griffiths, Portfolio Holder for Housing Services at Dacorum Borough Council, said: “These new homes are a fantastic example of how we continue to build for the future, as this new development will provide many families with a safe
and secure home. The energy efficiency measures that have been included will also help keep bills down to support tenants with the increased cost of living.”
