The Crown Estate is proud to be developing two new neighbourhoods and a pioneering commercial cluster at East Hemel, working in partnership with the Hemel Garden Communities development programme.
Today, the site is mostly agricultural land, located to the west of the M1, and inaccessible to the public. We have owned and looked after this land, a 849-acre site in Hertfordshire, for over 90 years. Now, we want to transform it into a place for the next generation.
• Two mixed-use neighbourhoods including new homes, work spaces, schools and safe places to play
• An enterprise cluster bringing together future-focussed clean tech, smart construction and agri-tech companies
• Accessible green space approximately half of the land will be retained as green space and made accessible for the public
We believe our plan for East Hemel responds to local needs in a sensitive and sustainable way, bringing previously inaccessible space into community use which would justify a change from its use as Green Belt land.
