Hemel Hempstead is primed for growth with both service and manufacturing businesses thanks to its proximity to London, fantastic connectivity and access to skilled people. There is also an availability of development sites coupled with the commitment and support of Dacorum Borough Council.

Hemel Hempstead is a place ‘you can do business’.

Inward investment into the area is at an all-time high, showing strong investor confidence. Prologis have a planning application for the Prologis Park development on Maylands gateway. The proposals will deliver new distribution warehouses and investment in the local road infrastructure. The scheme will secure over £80 million of private sector investment and based on research undertaken by Prologis, as well as that of Cranfield University, the scheme when fully delivered will support around 750 -1,000 jobs in the manufacturing and logistics sectors.

Additionally there have been offers for land of over 600,000 square foot on Maylands, including the 150,000+ sq.ft. Aviva Retail Scheme being given planning approval on Maylands Avenue. We’ve also seen additional redevelopment of 140,000 sq.ft. of class A offices at the Maylands building (formerly Diamond Point) and the £10 million redevelopment and upgrade of Westside, Apsley.

“A vibrant business community draws in infrastructure, investment and talent. Hemel Hempstead has just that. We have a growing number of diverse, great businesses in all sorts of sectors from technology, IT, logistics, manufacturing and service. We base ourselves here because, simply, it’s a great place to be doing business. ”
