Dacorum Look No Further
Dacorum is a thriving business and residential community in Hertfordshire to the north of London within easy reach of the rest of the UK and Europe.
It embraces the new town of Hemel Hempstead and the historic market towns of Berkhamsted and Tring, picturesque villages and rural locations and one of the largest and fastest growing business centres in the UK.
Dacorum is a great place to work, to live and to enjoy.
Hemel Hempstead has been voted the 8th happiest place in the UK by a new survey.
Rightmove’s Happy at Home Index looked at 12 different factors including area upkeep, safety and residents' pride in the area. Hemel also took the honour of being the happiest place in the south-east and was ranked first for residents’ contentment with where they live.
Andrew Williams, Leader of the Council, said, “This is fantastic news for Hemel Hempstead. We know that Hemel, and indeed the whole of Dacorum, is a great place to live, work and enjoy, so it’s great that this survey has highlighted how happy our residents are. This year alone we’ve made massive strides in our £30 million regeneration of Hemel Hempstead Town Centre, we have completed building our first new council homes in over 25 years and were involved in the redevelopment of Jarman Fields, a major leisure complex which is home to Hertfordshire’s only ice rink.
“There is still much to look forward to as plans have been submitted to build a new college campus that will provide innovative educational courses for local young people, The Forum (Dacorum’s shared services hub) will open in 2017 and the restoration of the Water Gardens will be completed next year.”
