House Prices

The land is situated is an extremely affluent area where house prices increased by 6% last year and are 87% above the national average. These premium house prices reflect the desirability of the village as a place to live and own property – including land.

Housing Need

House prices in the Three Rivers District are very high and affordability has been worsening. Alongside the need to provide more housing to meet forecast housing growth, there is therefore a particular need to achieve more affordable housing.

The Council considers that it is appropriate for Three Rivers to provide 4,500 dwellings between 2001 and 2026, a target of 180 homes per year. Development in Secondary Centres, such as Kings Langley, will provide approximately 24% of the District’s housing requirements.

To meet development needs, it will be necessary to review the boundaries of the Green Belt at the edge of existing settlements within the district.

There will be a challenge to maintaining the extent of the Green Belt while providing for local development needs and meeting regional housing targets.

Kings Langley is a historic village in Hertfordshire, northwest of Watford and just 19 miles from central London. Kings Langley is part of the London commuter belt and included in the government-defined Greater London Urban Area.

Kings Langley is a popular and attractive place in which to live, work and visit. The village has range of good local amenities and the High Street has a variety of shops. The village lies close to the M25 and M1 giving it a central location in the UK motorway network.

Economically, Kings Langley is closely linked to Watford; a major regional centre for the northern home counties. The town contains the head offices of a number of national companies and is also the UK base of various multi-nationals.

The primary shopping area in Watford is the Intu Shopping Centre, a large purpose-built indoor mall with over 140 shops, restaurants and cafes. The High Street, running through the town centre, is the main focus of activity at night having a high concentration of the town’s bars, clubs and restaurants.

To the north of the town are the Warner Bros. Studios - the only Hollywood film studio with a permanent base in the UK. The studio plans to invest more than £100million into the site creating hundreds of new jobs.

Watford is served by 3 railway stations and a Tube station. These rail stations offer frequent and fast rail links to Central London in as little as 16 minutes.

Major redevelopment of Watford Junction train station is planned for the next 10 years. These include plans that are already under way to extend the Tube into the town centre by diverting the Metropolitan line branch to Watford Junction. The new route is expected to open in 2018.

In August 2014 the Transport Secretary announced proposals to extend Crossrail into the Hertfordshire area. This would connect Watford Junction to the City cutting travel times to Canary Wharf to just 43 minutes.

The land is close to many affluent towns and villages including Rickmansworth, Radlett and St Albans. These prosperous areas have many independently owned shops, boutiques, cafes and restaurants that give the area a unique character and charm.

The London towns of Harrow, Wembley & Uxbridge are all close by and provide further transport links into Central London, which is just 19 miles from the land.
