Our ambition

Our ambition is to deliver good growth in Hertfordshire, which means places that are well-designed to help families stay healthy, safe and enjoy a good quality of life and where our economy continues to grow. We are committed to delivering continued economic success, and high quality of life and place for all.

Our county contributes £36billion a year to the UK economy and is home to some of the UK’s leading businesses. By 2031, it is estimated there will be up to 175,000 more people living in Hertfordshire - taking the population to 1.35million, with 100,000 new homes and 100,000 new jobs,.

Our county must continue to thrive – and grow further - as a place to live and raise a family, as a place for education, a hub for industry and a prime location to visit. You could be a part of this exciting time at Hertfordshire County Council.
