Watford’s premier location for European and national headquarter and regional offices, Clarendon Road connects Watford Junction to Watford town centre, so offers dual benefit of proximity to a major transport hub with short travel times to London and beyond, and amenity provision which is high on the agenda of employees.

Redevelopment of several sites along the road is underway which will deliver new grade A office space along with active ground floor uses.  New development sites will become available as office consolidations are completed.

Watford Borough Council, in partnership with Hertfordshire County Council and Hertfordshire LEP, is investing c. £10m on an enhancement scheme on Clarendon Road.

The vision is to widen pavements and narrow the road to create a safe, pedestrian-friendly environment which supports cycling, walking and public amenity, transforming the street’s character from its current use as predominantly a traffic dominated road with ‘closed’ frontages to a greener, more open, multifunctional space.

Details of the scheme can be viewed at www.clarendon-road.co.uk.

“New development sites on the Clarendon Road have bolstered the supply pipeline, and when coupled with the significant regeneration underway within the town centre, the Watford market has strengthened its appeal to the occupier while presenting a positive rental growth story to the investor.”

Welcome back to Watford town centre – shop local, stay safe

Watford town centre, and other retail areas across the town, are gearing up to welcome people back as non-essential shops and venues have started to re-open, with a range of measures in place to make sure they can shop safely and with confidence.

Shops and businesses are doing what is needed to keep their staff and customers safe. We are looking forward to welcoming people back to the High Street and other shopping areas across the town. Whilst they may look and feel a bit different, we are all looking forward to a return of some sort of normality, bringing vibrancy back to the town!

Watford businesses have done an amazing job to make sure they can open safely, while we all as individuals should do our part keeping a safe distance from others and washing or sanitising our hands regularly.
