    The designs of the new housing

    London Road Frontage

     

    The London Road Frontage comprises a series of buildings, mostly terraced, designed to emulate agricultural groupings, to complement the historic setting of the listed Pound Farm so that when you drive along London Road, the change from countryside to built-up area is gradual.

    Main Street

     

    Houses linked by carports to create an informal village street character, accented by the curving alignment of the street made up of two storey houses with a variety of architectural styles.

    Central Square

     

    A formal green square as focal point for the whole development. Some buildings of 2 ½ story height with Georgian inspired architecture. This area would create the impression of a traditional village green.

    Back Lanes

     

    Typical terraced homes and apartments familiar to many villages across Hertfordshire. Private gardens and balconies to enjoy by residents and all homes will benefit from ample parking unlike their Victorian predecessors.

    Green Edge

     

    Larger, detached houses around the perimeter of the site, overlooking the surrounding landscape. These houses are designed to fit in with the local character of houses set in a countryside setting and blend the built-up area with the open countryside.
