Have your say

We spoke to people in Hemel Hempstead town centre to find out what they think.

Jessica Robins, Hunton Bridge:

‘I guess it’s not a bad thing, but it would probably be better if we had a bigger student population here that would actually benefit from it. I would rather see a better variety of shops in the town centre.’

Bradley Tucker, Adeyfield:

‘It’s about supply and demand, really, but it doesn’t look very good in the town to have too many cheap stores. I would definitely like to see different shops – it would attract more people and more investors.’

Louise Brown, Grovehill:

‘I would definitely rather see another shop in its place. To bring more employment to the area is good, but I definitely think we have too many of those kinds of shops in the town cente at the moment.’

Rachael Elliott, works in Hemel town centre:

‘It would be nice to see more independent shops that offer something a bit different. People use them because they are cheap but there are so many and nothing is bringing people here.’

John Jenkins, Allandale:

‘Why not? I am pleased about it, as it is going to bring with it more jobs and it is much better than having an empty unit in the shopping centre. I would like to see tham all being filled and none standing empty.’
