The South Oxhey Initiative is a £150 million mixed-use regeneration project by Three Rivers District Council in partnership with developers Countryside Properties Ltd and Home Group. The aim of the South Oxhey Initiative is to regenerate the heart of South Oxhey together with three previously unused sites within the community. The project will deliver over 500 new homes with a mix of private sale and affordable homes. They will range from one, two and three-bedroom apartments to four-bedroom family houses. A new retail space of 55,000sft with a supermarket and other complementary retail units providing good shopping choices are included in the plan. Attractive public open spaces for flexible use have been included in the vision as well as a thriving new heart of the neighbourhood. There will be improved access to Carpenders Park Station and a new market square for 2020 to compliment the new retail units.
This exciting collaboration will see a step change for local residents and the wider community including employment and training opportunities.
Phase 1 – Construction works on Phase 1 commenced in autumn 2016 (sites at Hallowes Crescent, Maylands Road, Hayling Road/Holmside Rise and ex-car park on the corner of Bridlington Road and Oxhey Drive), with the first private homes completed in summer 2017. The first social rented homes (on Maylands Road and Hallowes Crescent) completed in early 2018 and it is currently anticipated that the development will be fully complete in 2022. 19 retail units & the provision of office space also took place during phase 1 and the units are now fitted out. Our Principal Building Control Surveyor Peter Moore has been very busy overseeing the inspection schedule!
Phase 2– 2018-2020 Phase 2 will see 162 Apartments, 12 Houses and 730 m2 of retail space go into the development programme. Our building inspections began for phase 2 in August 2018 from the installation of ground beams & reinforcements to the first sections of drainage laid. Our latest inspection this month included the first roof inspections.
Phase 3 – 2020-2022
