Completion at Coniston Road
On Friday, 23rd September residents and representatives from Dacorum Borough Council and Bugler Developments gathered at Coniston Road, Kings Langley, to celebrate the completion of 10 new council homes.
The homes are a mixture of two and three-bedroom houses, providing much needed housing for social rent to applicants on Dacorum’s housing register. The homes back onto open fields and are designed to complement the existing neighbouring properties.
They are also energy efficient, featuring solar panels and increased insulation to the fabric above the current building regulation requirements. In addition, each home has an electric vehicle charging point and private parking space.
The morning saw a traditional ribbon cutting ceremony to mark the completion of the 10 new homes. Some of Coniston Road’s new residents then enjoyed refreshments and spoke with those who had played a part in making these new homes a reality.
Andy Bugler, Bugler Group CEO said: “The ten new affordable homes are the latest in a series of completed projects for Dacorum Borough Council. Together we have a strong partnership and are delivering affordable homes of a high standard for the Dacorum based community. We wish the new residents many happy years in their new homes, and it was good to celebrate alongside them this morning.”
Alan Anderson, Portfolio Holder for Place at Dacorum Borough Council, said, “Along with Deputy Mayor Cllr Alan Johnson, this is a development we are particularly proud of as these are the first new council homes to be built in our Kings Langley ward since the early 1980s. We are continuing to build new homes throughout the borough to support those in housing need and have plans in place to deliver 350 new homes between 2020 and 2025.”
Cllr Margaret Griffiths, Portfolio Holder for Housing Services at Dacorum Borough Council, said: “These new homes are a fantastic example of how we are continue to build for the future as this new development will provide many families with a safe and secure home. The energy efficiency measures that have been included will also help keep bills down to support tenants with the increased cost of living.”
