So we've had a nice, new, shiny council home (The Forum), for well over two years, now. So why on earth do residents of Hemel Hempstead have to put up with having to look at something that resembles a scene from some post-apocalyptic horror film, as they drive past the site on the Leighton Buzzard Road?
Well, things didn't go quite according to plan. At the bottom of the building are two electrical sub stations and at a cost of some £300,000 just to decommission these systems, Dacorum Borough Council is treading carefully.
The sub-stations were supposed to be decommissioned in June 2019 but we have recently learnt that the schedule has been moved back to the end of the year.
We're in the process of getting details so please do check in again soon.
