More affordable family homes from the Watford Social Rent Programme
Two minute read

We’re delighted to announce the completion of our second development as part of the Watford Social Rent Programme, providing brand-new family homes at Bowmans Green, with additional homes at Hope Green to follow by December.

Working in partnership with Watford Borough Council, our development programme seeks to improve access to low-cost, high quality housing across Watford, offering residents a home they can be proud of at a fraction of the market rent.

Bowmans Green is now home to one 2-bedroom bungalow and two 3-bedroom bungalows benefiting from off street parking and private rear gardens, these properties have been allocated to residents for social rent, which is typically around half the cost of renting an equivalent property on the open market.

Four 3-bedroom houses for social rent at Hope Green are also set to be completed by December.

Funded by Watford Community Housing, Watford Borough Council and Homes England, the Watford Social Rent Programme will provide 56 new homes in Watford.
