Looking Back on 2017…and Ahead to 2018

As we say goodbye to 2017, we reflect on what an exciting year it has been for both Hemel Hempstead and the Business Ambassadors. Now counting almost 70 of our local businesses as members we can also claim a 100% renewal rate.

Thank you to our Business Ambassadors for your continued support and enthusiasm during a very busy 12 months.

This was the year in which we saw Hemel Hempstead celebrate 70 years as a new town, the official opening of the new shared services hub and home of Dacorum Borough Council The Forum , the launch of the Hertfordshire Enviro-Tech Enterprise Zone, the return of the Tour of Britain showcasing the regenerated Town Centre, new council homes from Dacorum Borough Council, the opening of the Maylands Business Centre extension, planning permission for a £13 million scheme to redevelop The Marlowes Shopping Centre, together with a successful Town Centre BID, plus new businesses seeing the benefits of the area, moving into, investing in and creating jobs in Dacorum.

In July together with Dacorum Borough Council, we hosted our successful Investment Showcase at the House of Commons, and we’ve welcomed our Ambassadors to 6 exclusive events, offering an unparalleled opportunity for our Ambassadors to come together, find out about and debate major developments and investments into the area.

We’re looking forward to 2018, and the opportunities for Dacorum in the year ahead…and beyond!
