Dacorum receive plans for New M1 business park development in Hertfordshire

Dacorum Borough Council is reviewing detailed plans unveiled by developers of a new business park off the M1 motorway in Hemel Hempstead. The park would be located next to the roundabout at junction 8, and would include five industrial units and 342 parking spaces.

The developers, Prologis UK, said the park would meet “wider employment demands” needed locally. The Maylands area is already home to several major businesses including nutraceutical firm Vitabiotics and Hermes.

planning statement said: “Maylands Gateway will be a first-rate business park with some technology sector focus, containing a series of high-quality, sustainable buildings set within a green landscape focused around a central lake.”

“The Maylands Gateway will be a highly visible sign of the regeneration of Maylands and provide a high-quality environment in which to invest, do business and work. It will be an office-led development.” The 2023 planning application reads: “The site is currently vacant, with no build development within the boundary.”

The authority has already granted outline planning permission for the park, but detailed plans have since emerged. The planning statement reads: “The site measures approximately 6.89 hectares in size and comprises a large, L-shaped parcel of land consisting of open, green space. The site sits within the identified Maylands Gateway Masterplan area.”

Amazon, which had a warehouse less than 500m from the northern edge of the proposed park, announced its intention to close the site in January.
