Creating a greener, more connected New Town 

In the heart of the Golden Triangle between Oxford, Cambridge and London, Hemel Garden Communities will create new neighbourhoods and transform existing ones and the wider area, building on the best of its heritage and culture to become a greener, more connected New Town. The vision is organised into four thematic pillars. Each pillar reinforces the aspirations to promote healthy lifestyles and respond to the climate crisis, which are the two crossover themes of the Spatial Vision. Hemel Garden Communities will be home to inclusive, integrated neighbourhoods connected by a green network, and thoughtfully designed places with engaged communities, all underpinned by digital connectivity, a self-sustaining economy and pioneering green technology driven by Hertfordshire Innovation Quarter.
