PROPERTY DEVELOPMENT


LAs last autumn, inviting comments on which the deadline was November 2014.

The vast majority of new homes will be built in and around Hemel Hempstead – about 8,800 in total. There are LAs at West Hemel, Marchmont Farm and the Old Town.

large family homes wanting easy maintenance free living.’


• Aspen Park, London Rd, Hemel


Hempstead: four large (5- and 6-bed) Bovis houses.
