We are transforming this disused brownfield site into 60 homes.

Formerly  the Oaklands Yard, this was primarily a light industrial site including some basic commercial buildings (used as offices) and storage containers. It was situated beside a B3Living garage site, and the two were amalgamated to maximise the potential of the development.

What is to replace the former depot is a welcoming residential neighbourhood, including a blend of apartments and family homes.

This site is one of four B3Living land-led projects that will deliver 145 new properties in the centre of Hoddesdon. Median house prices in the Borough of Broxbourne have risen to over £355,000, so we are working hard to address the need for affordable homes, especially the shortage of one - three bedroom properties.

This site is located in a strategic area, adjacent to the New River Bridge improvement scheme which was also completed in 2021.
