The Brow Development

The Brow


In November 2016 Watford Community Housing received planning approval to regenerate The Brow, providing a new retail and residential complex with modern space standards and improved facilities. The renewed area will help to improve community wellbeing and offer better services for residents. 

Following extensive consultation with the residents, retail operators, local community groups and ward councillors, the scheme will provide eight retail spaces and total of 38 homes, 35 of which are family homes for affordable rent. Click here to view our planning application.

After consultation with local residents and shopkeepers, we concluded that it would not be possible to temporarily relocate the shops currently at the Brow. This decision reflects the wishes of the local community, following strong opposition to both of the proposed sites. All the existing retailers have been offered a long-term lease in the completed development.

Works began on the site in September 2017, and the project is predicted to be completed in January 2020. 

Site update: Works are progressing well on site, with the main roof works now complete, as you can see below.
