Help shape the future of Hemel Hempstead Town Centre

Town Centre

We would like residents and local communities to give their views on how we should shape design guidance for the future of Hemel Hempstead town centre.

The COVID-19 pandemic has changed the way residents live and work, prompting us to re-evaluate how the town centre will be used. We would like to plan ahead and deliver a design code supporting the area to be a thriving and attractive place to live and work.

We're keen to hear from local residents, businesses and community groups about their favourite places, spaces and buildings in Hemel Hempstead town centre. Feedback is so important to be sure the town centre meets the current and future needs of the community.

With support from Commonplace, we've set up an exciting and engaging map that users can pin-point specific areas and say what is important to them and their community.

Please visit the Commonplace website to have a say on improvements and new development coming forward in the town centre.

Comments are all left anonymously. Feedback can be given on any place, building or street by dropping a virtual pin on to the map (you can use a mobile device or desktop computer) and leaving feedback in the pop-up comments bar. You'll also be able to view feedback from others by zooming into the map and clicking on comments.

We will review the feedback and start to plan for new homes in the Paradise/Wood Lane area of the town centre first. We will take all the ideas and issues raised and plan for buildings, public spaces and landscaping which communities want to live, visit and work in.

The consultation website will be open for comments until 15 November 2021.
