Our vision is for the town centre to become the beating heart of Hemel at all times, bringing communities together. It will be the place to create new opportunities for all homes, address the climate emergency, celebrate Hemel Hempstead’s assets and promote cultural and leisure activities.
The current pedestrianised areas and general level layout provides great accessibility. This, combined with access to shops, cafes, restaurants, leisure facilities and nature, offers an attractive and unique place to visit. Our goal is to focus on developing new ideas for how streets and public spaces can contribute towards a successful, vibrant and inclusive town centre which supports the delivery of high-quality growth. The Town Centre will be the natural choice for people to live, close to buses, trains, cycle and walking routes. It will feel safe and vibrant, with all residents’ needs met close to their doorstep.
