Regrettably, due to government instruction and advice, Watford Community Housing will temporarily shut down development activity at Boundary way.
New housing development
All works to new housing in the centre of the estate are complete, with the exception of any operational adjustments. External areas are also very close to completion, with minimal works required.
Watford Community Housing will be providing 24/7 security and, as soon as there is a relaxation of government restrictions, we will look to complete any outstanding works and allow for occupation and all new parking to be in place.
Boundary Way planned highways works
Our plans to improve areas of the one-way system on the estate are progressing through the approvals process with Hertfordshire County Council as planned. We hope to be able to continue this remotely during the period of government restrictions in order to be prepared for the works to begin.
All new and existing play parks will also be closed until government restrictions are relaxed.
We appreciate that this may be disappointing news but, the safety and security of our customers is of the utmost importance, and we must comply with government instruction and guidance to safeguard residents and staff.
In September 2014, after extensive consultation with neighbours and local stakeholders, Watford Community Housing was granted planning permission at Boundary Way from Three Rivers District Council and Watford Borough Council. It includes:
•a residential-led development of 56 new homes – all of which are affordable
•a new community hub with a community building, shop and shopkeeper's flat
•a contemporary and high-quality design that is appropriate for the future aspirations of the area
•improved public open spaces for residents of the local area
Area A will provide 5 one-bedroom flats, 4 two-bedroom flats and 1 three-bedroom flat. This area also includes the creation of a safe and secure garden space for the users of the new community hub.
Area B will provide 4 one-bedroom flats, 18 two-bedroom flats and 5 three-bedroom houses.
Area C will provide 4 one-bedroom flats, and will face onto the newly laid out street. The new street layout includes parking and green spaces.
Area C1 will provide 2 one-bedroom flats
Area D will provide 1 two-bedroom house
Area E will provide 4 two-bedroom houses
Area F will provide 4 one-bedroom flats
Area G will provide 4 one-bedroom flats
We know that parking is a key concern for residents. Our proposals are designed to ensure that we create more available parking for everyone, with identified bays and improved access. The new development will create a total of 472 surface parking spaces, combining the on-street and courtyard parking, compared with the current total of 392.
