Dacorum Borough Council is the latest of 11 councils on the Hertfordshire Growth Board to officially announce its support for the new statutory joint committee.

Building upon the success of the Growth Board collaboration over the last two years, the new committee, made up of Hertfordshire Council leaders and chair of the Local Enterprise Partnership, will work within a democratic framework in all its future decision making. 

This increased openness and transparency in the meetings of the Growth Board will provide a means for businesses, stakeholders and residents to understand how the work of the board will support the delivery of good growth with long-term benefits for Hertfordshire.

Councillor David Williams, leader of Hertfordshire County Council and chair of the Hertfordshire Growth Board, said: “The joint committee is a positive step and an important evolution of the Growth Board governance. 

“With the ongoing impact of COVID-19 and the importance of economic recovery, the need for collaboration, consensus and joint working across Hertfordshire has never been greater.”

Councillor Andrew Williams, Leader of Dacorum Borough Council said “The three pillars of the Hertfordshire Growth Board are people, place and prosperity. 

“And through the Growth Board collaboration we will act together to meet the real challenges of economic growth and provide homes for now and for future generations. 

“At the same time, we will also be coordinating and managing the delivery of strategic infrastructure to support this growth and to meet the changing needs of Hertfordshire residents.”

North Herts District Council, Broxbourne Borough Council, Three Rivers District Council, Hertfordshire County Council, Hertfordshire Local Enterprise Partnership, Watford Borough Council and Hertsmere Borough Council have also given their formal support for the new joint committee.
