Prologis Hemel Hempstead - CGI

Prologis has been given the green light to develop its 35-acre site at Maylands Gateway in Hemel Hempstead.

The developer has gained planning permission from Dacorum Borough Council for a 585,000ft² seven-unit scheme, including a £2m investment in local highway infrastructure on the site, which lies close to the M25 and M1.

Maylands Gateway, which is part of Hemel’s new Enviro-tech Enterprise Zone, will be dubbed Prologis Park Hemel Hempstead and is expected to create more than 750 new jobs.

Paul Weston, senior vice-president at Prologis UK, said: “We are delighted that our plans for Maylands Gateway are moving forward.

“Hemel Hempstead is an ideal location for many of our customers and there is already a great deal of interest in the site from potential occupiers. We have been investing in Hemel Hempstead for almost 20 years and will continue to be an active member of the local community.”

Prologis is currently building a large speculative build at Marston Gate.
