The council is launching a map to encourage walking and cyclings across neighbourhoods.

The Hemel Green Walk map will connect Hemel Hempstead and Apsley stations to the town and to show off some of the best places of the town this May.

The aim for the app, which will launch in May’s National Walking Month, is to make neighbourhoods more accessible, bringing walking and cycling connections to life and to integrate high quality green spaces into the public’s day-to-day lives.
