At East Hemel, we want to create a vibrant community that new and existing residents can be proud of. As the single land owner for the site, we have a rare opportunity to deliver a cohesive vision for East Hemel.
The Crown Estate will be holding a public consultation event to present our Draft Masterplan for land East of Hemel Hempstead and to get your thoughts and feedback – you can give us your thoughts via the online feedback form, available here.
This follows our previous consultation held in October 2016 on our vision and emerging options for East Hemel. The events were a great opportunity for us to listen to residents’ feedback on our proposals and understand local priorities.
Since the last consultation, we have used this feedback to help develop our proposals. We have also worked with local partners in the area to establish the East Hemel Forum. You can view agendas and minutes from the Forum’s meetings here.
The Crown Estate will be holding events across three days at three different locations in the local area. Please feel free to drop by at one.
The idea of East Hemel was first proposed by Government Inspectors in 2006 and it now forms part of the emerging St Albans Strategic Local Plan (SLP).
The Council has identified a need for 8,720 homes to be built across the District by 2031. The Council has proposed that East Hemel will provide 2,500 of these new homes, helping to meet local housing need. It will also create up to 8,000 new jobs along with new local infrastructure and green spaces.
Details are as follows:
Tuesday 20 June 5pm – 8pm
Woodhall Farm Community Centre, Datchet Close, Woodhall Farm, HP2 7JX
Friday 23 June 4pm – 8pm
Redbourn Village Hall, 63 High St, Redbourn, AL3 7LW
Saturday 24 June 10am – 2pm
Leverstock Green Village Hall, Village Centre, Leverstock Green, HP3 8QG
