Plans to build 160 new homes in Croxley Green near Rickmansworth have been given the green light. The Hill Group has won its appeal to develop this previously allocated site adjacent to Killingdown Farm – a 7.5 hectare site on Little Green Lane – to create a new neighbourhood extension to the village of Croxley Green.
Providing a wide range of homes from apartments to five-bedroom detached houses traditionally designed to blend in with the local architecture, the development is set to include green open spaces, a play area and footpaths.
Andy Hill, Group Chief Executive of Hill, commented: “We are delighted to have been granted consent to develop 160 high-quality new homes in Croxley Green, helping to address the acute shortage of homes in the area. We are committed to building an outstanding community of well-designed, energy-efficient new homes, incorporating sustainable technology such as air-source heat pumps, which help to reduce carbon emissions significantly. Our plans also include biodiversity enhancements such as extensive new planting and habitat creation, resulting in a 10% gain in biodiversity across the development.”
