PLANS FOR KINGS: Developers release ideas for expansion of Rectory Farm on greenbelt land 

 Published on: 27th September 2019   |   By: News Desk   |   Category: Uncategorized

After the council granted permission to the redevelopment of Rectory Farm, developers have released new ideas to expand the project on greenbelt land. 

At a second public event, Angle Property presented their new ideas which will see an extra 70 homes added to the project if it gets the green light. 

The original application of 55 homes would be replaced by the new scheme which would result in the land redeveloped into 125 homes.

In excess of the policy, 40 per cent of homes would be affordable and a brand-new primary access to the site via a proposed junction on Hempstead Road and further highways improvements to the road would be completed. 

Angle appreciates the site is currently greenbelt but believes the scheme would have limited impact on the greenbelt and helps meet the housing need in Dacorum. 

The whole site has been promoted by Angle for residential development as part of Dacorum’s Local Plan consultation process. 

The masterplan scheme put forward by the developers will provide approximately 175 residential homes to the site, but these plans would only be put forward if it is needed to meet local housing needs. 

Benefits outlined in the document are a total of 132 parking spaces, enhancement of existing sit ecology and canal side improvements, extensive public open space and canal side improvements and a formation of play spaces to cater all ages. 

A key part of the presenting the ideas to the community is feedback.

All feedback is welcome to the developers and will be included in the planning application submitted to the council.
