The Herald Express reported in January that property firm Capital & Regional had agreed a £35.5million deal to buy the town centre shopping centre.

It has now agreed additional deals to buy Edmonds Parade and Fareham House. Together the three sites will provide 90 units over 340,000 sq ft, with 1,200 car parking spaces.

James Ryman, investment director at Capital & Regional, said: “We are long-term investors in town centres, and we recognise the potential that Hemel Hempstead has as a fast-growing London satellite town.”
