Located in the East England, to be more precise in Hertfordshire, Hemel Hempstead has a population of about eighty nine thousand people. Not a hugely populated area, the city has slowly but gradually developed over the years in order to develop itself. In the beginning there were some suburbs, industrial areas and villages before the Newtown was planned. This Newtown centers around some shops in order to create a neighborhood.
Although lands have been reserved for recreational areas and for hotels and other amenities yet the projects remain derelict. Plans have been submitted by the Capital & Regional landlords so that the people of that area can enjoy cafes & restaurants, with play area, gym, and bowling alley. However, no developments have taken place as of June 2013.
In fact the John Dickinson Stationery mills site has been redesigned and has given way to a supermarket, office blocks, housing, two retail parks, and a hotel. Although some of the old buildings are still there as they want to open the Paper Museum out there. Even the Nash Mills that was hardly used have given way to housing and community facilities. One can still find some old historic buildings along with numerous water courses that are used as amenities.
