Planning application submitted for 11 new council homes in Tring

Dacorum Borough Council has submitted a planning application for much needed social housing in Tring, Hertfordshire.

The application is to build 11 new homes on the 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 a two- and three-bedroom detached and a small terrace of houses. Set back behind a row of trees and near the Tring Garden Centre. The 11 houses will sit near the existing allotments and will include a new parking area for the allotments.

The proposed plans include houses which will have private gardens, solar PV panels, high levels of thermal insulation and heating is provided by way of 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, designed in accordance with Nationally Described Space Standards, within an inclusive environment that is 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 the Council’s housing register.
