[b[Our People

Our vision

"Working in partnership to create a borough that enables the communities of Dacorum to thrive and prosper."

We're committed to creating thriving and prosperous communities across the borough. We aim to have a positive impact on where we live and work by delivering on the priorities of local residents and elected members. Our priorities are:

- A clean, safe and enjoyable environment
- Building strong and vibrant communities
- Ensuring economic growth and prosperity
- Providing good quality affordable homes, in particular for those most in need
- Ensuring efficient, effective and modern service delivery
- Climate and Ecological Emergency - working to deliver net zero carbon

What we do

We have responsibility for keeping the borough clean, safe and green, manage a housing stock of more than 10,000 homes and run all elections in Dacorum. Our wide remit means we employ for diverse and interesting roles across:

- planning, development and regeneration
- housing and homelessness
- environmental and regulatory services
- electoral and democratic services
- finance and resources
- performance, people and innovation
- youth and arts services

Equality and diversity

We're committed to creating a culture in which equality of opportunity is actively promoted in every aspect of service provision and delivery and the working environment. We aim to remove barriers and improve access to our services and to achieve equality of opportunity in our employment practices.

Climate change and sustainability

We have, along with many other councils in the UK, declared that there is a current and future climate change emergency that requires urgent planning and action. The new Local Plan will incorporate the maximum possible sustainability requirements that the system will allow and encourage developers to go beyond this in order to future proof homes and buildings.

Located in the west of Hertfordshire, the borough of Dacorum - which includes the thriving towns of Hemel Hempstead, Berkhamsted and Tring, plus numerous picturesque villages - is a great place to live.
