The sizes and types of units is summarised in the table below:
The mix and types of the affordable homes are shown in the table below:

Watford Borough Council planning policy requires 35% of new dwellings to be for affordable housing. Based on a 37 unit development with a mixture of private sale and affordable units, there would only be the obligation to provide 13 affordable homes under a S106 agreement. However, we will be providing all 37 units for rent which is a net gain of 24 affordable homes for rent to local people.
|Unit Type||Tenure||% market rent||Rent (per week)|
|2b3p Apartment||Affordable rent||71%||£196|
|3b5p Apartment||Market Rent||100%||£300|
