Thank you for your interest in Broxbourne’s Director of Place role. Now is an exciting time to join Broxbourne. With ambitious corporate objectives and a newly adopted Local Plan, Broxbourne has a lot to offer the successful candidate.
You will be joining the Council at an early stage of the £400 million Brookfield Development Project, the centre piece of the Council’s economic development strategy and its plans to really put Broxbourne ‘on the map’. This project will create in the region of 1,500 dwellings to provide homes for 5,000 people in addition to 2,000 jobs in nearly 50,000m² of retail, leisure and office space.
The Director of Place will lead on a number of strategic partnerships and key projects which have the potential to have a major positive impact on the Borough’s local economy, as well as the economies of eastern Hertfordshire and West Essex.
There are a number of large scale regeneration projects planned for the south of the Borough including the creation of an innovative new employment corridor along the southern end of the A10. Part of this comprises the development of a new 46 acre business park at Maxwell’s Farm including the Council’s own £10 million business and technology centre, being developed with support from the Hertfordshire Local Enterprise Partnership.
The employment areas at Park Plaza are located next to the Borough’s boundary with the London Borough of Enfield, where the A10 meets the M25 at junction 25. The plans for Park Plaza West comprise a gateway development of up to 100,000m² of floor space as part of a major business campus in a landscaped setting, for offices, the research and development sector and other users that support the Council’s employment objectives. These projects form a key part of the Re-setting South East Herts Economy (A10 corridor) work programme of the Hertfordshire Growth Board.
The Council’s major regeneration plans will evolve alongside its long-standing ambitions to revitalise and support its thriving town centres. This will mean delivering the Hoddesdon Town Centre Improvement Plan, the Cheshunt Old Pond Strategy and the Waltham Cross Renaissance. The Council has already made a significant financial investment in its town centres, acquiring key regeneration sites including local shopping centres and high street shopping parades. This suite of plans is designed to improve the lives of our residents and local business community.
These are just a snapshot of the ambitious plans to really develop a sense of place for the local area so why not join us on our exciting journey.
