There was a great turnout with business leaders from Hemel Hempstead Business Ambassadors, MP Mike Penning, Deputy Mayor, Cllr Rosie Sutton and Cllr Graham Sutton among the many guests who attended the opening.

The new extension will help to support the growing need for business space in the area, providing an opportunity for some existing tenants to upgrade and others to come on board and flourish.

Cllr Graham Sutton, portfolio holder for Planning and Regeneration, said "The creation of our new units means we're continuing to create great conditions for business, help people find and keep jobs, support our local businesses to employ local residents, and raise the skills and qualification levels of our population. Businesses can find the experts they need in our borough and attract additional investment to Dacorum and increase the number of jobs available." 

Maylands Business Centre was established in June 2011 and is a custom-built, dedicated business centre in the business district of Hemel Hempstead. 

Tenants at the centre have access to business advice, training and personal support from Dacorum Borough Council. Its facilities and position mean that it has become a community centre for all businesses in the Maylands business area - a place for businesses to meet, train and make contacts.

The centre serves to 'fast forward' small businesses in their first commercial premises, providing support and flexible premises in which to develop and grow.
