Land director at Cala Homes Chiltern, Jim Brunt, said: “We are passionate about creating vibrant, sustainable developments that become part of the communities in which they are built. The proposed homes for Bovingdon will

help to address the local housing demand while the generous new areas of open space and the play area will meet the recreational needs of existing and future residents.  

“As we look ahead to creating this new development in Bovingdon, we remain committed to continuing our engagement with the local community and stakeholders during the

determination period of the planning application and post planning.”

Previously the development group has constructed over 270 homes in Dacorum. This includes its project Roman Park, which involved creating a neighbourhood of over 220 homes in Tring.

Dacorum Borough Council will consider whether or not to approve the new housing project.
