Chalkdene Developments completes Carriage Quarter

15th March 2024

Chalkdene Developments, a joint venture partnership between Lovell Partnerships and HLL, is behind the exciting new development, which will deliver 45 new homes on Perham Way. The site was purchased from Hertfordshire County Council, Lovell Partnerships has built the new development and Hightown Housing Association has purchased the affordable homes including two wheelchair accessible apartments.

The new development, named the Carriage Quarter, includes a mix of 27 apartments and 18 houses. All the houses benefit from private gardens, and off-street parking or garages.  Apartments come with allocated parking and shared amenity space for each block and cycle bays are available.

The Carriage Quarter has been specifically designed to complement the surrounding area. The new houses and apartments have large windows to provide well-lit, comfortable, and contemporary living spaces and EV charging points.

Richard Roberts, Leader of Hertfordshire Council, said: “This is a truly sympathetically designed, mixed development which will be a great addition to the community of London Colney.  Thanks to Chalkdene and the Lovell team we have seen a redundant site transformed into much needed homes”

David Bogle, Chief Executive, Hightown Housing, said: “Thank you to all our partners involved in this fantastic new development. We are particularly grateful to St Albans City & District Council for the additional funding which enabled us to let the 12 Hightown homes at social rent. These well designed, safe, affordable homes will benefit local people who are unable to buy or rent on the open market.”

Justine Fancy, Programme Director at Chalkdene Developments, said:We are delighted to be handing over this, our fourth, development in Hertfordshire as part of our joint venture between Lovell and HLL. The development looks fantastic and we look forward to seeing happy residents enjoying their new homes.”
