Our people

We are committed to creating thriving and prosperous communities across the borough. We aim to have a positive impact on where we live and work by delivering on the priorities of local residents and elected members. Our priorities are:

  • A clean, safe and enjoyable environment
  • Building strong and vibrant communities
  • Ensuring economic growth and prosperity
  • Providing good-quality affordable homes, in particular for those most in need
  • Delivering an efficient and modern council.

Where we work

Based in the heart of Hemel Hempstead, we moved into The Forum in 2017. The new Council head office provides us with a modern work environment that we are proud to work in. The Forum is also home to Hemel Hempstead Library, the Register Office, Citizens Advice and Eat Lunch café, making it a great space for the whole community.
