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.

The land is designated as Green Belt and lies within the Chilterns Character Area. Any development would be subject to the appropriate planning permission.
Land values rise by 14% in the past year
The average value of farmland is rising at the fastest rate since 2014 as land prices increased by 14% over the year.
We are now in a situation reminiscent of the 1970s when inflation also soared. During such periods, investors often seek out assets classes that act as inflationary hedges. Gold is one, but farmland, which is a more tangible asset and subject to less price volatility, is arguably a better option.
