A new artist’s impression shows how 13 affordable homes could look if they are built as planned.

Retirement property firm Beechcroft Developments owns the site between Swing Gate Lane and Berkhamsted High Street, where the properties would be based.

Dacorum Borough Council, however, would carry out the building work.

Beechcroft says the area is currently an eyesore at the gateway to the town that the authority would like to see redeveloped.

This website previously reported on developer’s plans to convert Berkhamsted Police Station into 23 flats for the over-55s above a new library for the town
