Gallery: Housing Development
Housebuilding in Hertford has picked up over recent years following the slowdown caused by the financial crisis of 2008 and resulting recession. The vast majority of homes being built are flats, the most recent developments being Priory Gate (Claude Hamilnton Way) , a Redrow development of 120 homes on land formerly occupied by Hertford East sidings; and Evron Wharf (Smeaton Court), a Weston Homes development of 182 homes in Marshgate Drive and fronting the River Lee.
There are now over 12,000 households in Hertford. The East Herts District Plan earmarks sites for 950 new homes in Hertford in the years up to 2033.
