Local Development

East of Berkhamsted lies Hemel Hempstead; a thriving town which has recently seen a £347 million refurbishment to regenerate the town centre and its central shopping precinct.

The Riverside Shopping Centre in Hemel Hempstead was opened in 2005 and is an exciting open air shopping development built around the banks of the river that homes many shops and restaurants and café. The Riverside has seamlessly extended Hemel Hempstead High Street complimenting Marlowe’s Shopping Centre built in 1990.

The Hemel 2020 Vision, implemented by Dacorum District Council, is a plan set up for the future of the town including improving quality of life, providing homes, creating new businesses, improving employment opportunities.

It enjoys enviable transport links; there are four major airports (including Heathrow) within 45 minutes. London can be reached by train in under half an hour and Maylands is just minutes from the intersection of two of the UK’s most important road corridors – the M1 and M25.

The Maylands Business Park is the most significant new development that Hemel Hempstead is currently experiencing. It is aimed at bringing more investment and jobs and is already recognised as one of Europe’s premier business parks and the largest in the East of England.

Maylands Business Park is currently home to more than 600 companies, providing employment for nearly 25,000 people. It includes a mix of sectors including high tech manufacturing, retail and business services.

Maylands is impressive, with 325 hectares already developed and further earmarked for expansion. Businesses looking for room to grow will find in Maylands the largest area of prime development land within 30 minutes of London. In turn the Maylands site is also under consideration for housing development to coincide with the investment in businesses.

A large part of the surrounding area was badly damaged as a result of the Buncefield Oil Depot fire in 2005 and it is hoped that development on this land will act as a catalyst for the regeneration of the area and help attract new employers to Hemel Hempstead.

In addition English Partnerships and EEDA are working alongside Dacorum Borough Council and Hertfordshire County Council to produce a regeneration strategy for the town which builds on developing the new town and aims to inspire development for the next 50 years and beyond.
