Dacorum Borough Council is recruiting a masterplanner to regenerate the Two Waters area of Hemel Hempstead

The winning team will draw up a masterplan and viability report for the 124 hectare area between Hemel Hempstead Station, Apsley Station and the iconic Plough Roundabout (pictured) – also known as the Magic Roundabout.

The chosen masterplanner will be expected to consult local stakeholders and develop proposals set out in the area’s 2015 strategic framework.

According to the contract notice: ‘The council anticipate that the study will comprise two phases.

‘The first will review the existing site and background papers, including the Two Waters Strategic Framework, before developing conceptual designs of the whole area.

‘Phase 2 of the study will develop the level of detail in the master plan for the three key opportunity areas including looking at the effects on the transport network, mitigation required that would enable these to come forwards and address the viability for the options presented.’

Feria urbanism completed a strategic framework for the area last year. Recommendations included more residential and retail uses on the key Two Waters Road and London Road thoroughfares.

New public spaces outside Hemel Hempstead and Apsley stations were also proposed along with new street-tree planting and green routes.

Local landmarks include the Plough Roundabout – featuring six exits and six mini-roundabouts – and the Grand Union canal which runs through the area.

Firms must have experience of delivering masterplans with viability reports within the past three years to bid for the contract which is valued at between £35,000 and £49,000.

The deadline for applications is 12noon on 11 April.
