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.
In June 2017, we were pleased to welcome almost 900 people to our second round of public consultation events on our proposed masterplan for East Hemel. This followed our previous consultation held in October 2016 on our vision and emerging options. Thank you to everyone who attended the events or submitted feedback on our plans.
Since then, we have continued engaging with councillors and community groups through the East Hemel Forum. We hope to submit an application later this year. A preliminary summary of the feedback we received can be viewed in the Downloads section below.
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.
If you were unable to attend the June events or want further information you can download our consultation boards in the Downloads section below. 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.
If you have any questions about our plans, please do not hesitate to get in touch using the details below.
Our history can be traced back to 1066. In the 21st century, we are a successful, commercial enterprise, established as a market leader in our key sectors and known for a progressive, sustainable approach that creates long term value, beyond its financial return.
Across our rural land portfolio, one of our core activities involves promoting development opportunities which help meet local housing needs.
At East Hemel we want to create a community. A place that new and existing residents can be proud of.
