    Creating a strong and prosperous regional economy is a goal we all share

With over 45 members signing on and pledging their commitment to raising the profile of the area, the Business Ambassadors are firmly established in promoting Hemel Hempstead and the surrounding areas, and the opportunities it offers businesses, developers and institutions.

Inward investment into the area is at an all-time high since the launch. Earlier this year Capital & Regional acquired Marlowes Shopping Centre, Edmunds Parade and Fareham House for a total of £53.8 million. There have been offers for land of over 600,000 square foot on Maylands, while a planning application to regenerate the Bourne End Mills business area has recently been granted.

And of course, not forgetting Dacorum Borough Council’s own £30 million Hemel Evolution investment in regenerating the town centre – including The Forum shared services hub, Marlowes shopping area transformation and the Jellicoe Water Gardens restoration. 

These are exciting times for our town.
