Stevenage Borough Council

About us

Stevenage is a thriving town full of opportunities for our communities, led by an innovative Council. Our motto is “the heart of the town lies in its people” and with everything from world-class R&D companies to our four award-winning Green Flag parks all located here, our people are at the heart of what we do.



Our vision for Stevenage is of a prosperous town with vibrant communities and improved life chances. We believe that this is achievable only if we continue to be an innovative council that works with the community to provide value for money services for all, and effective support for the most vulnerable.

Though its history goes back several hundred years, Stevenage’s current incarnation began in 1946 with its unveiling as the UK’s first new town. Its goal was to give generations of people and businesses the foundation to build the exciting futures.



As an ambitious Council located in an ambitious town, we have a reputation for punching above our weight and have set a new corporate mission to make Stevenage Even Better, with big ambitions to become a destination town of the future. In support of these aims, we are seeking new members of our Estates and Housing & Investment teams.


SG1 Regeneration

We have begun work on a £1bn regeneration of Stevenage town centre. Developer Mace has been appointed to lead the way in the first stage of our ambitious programme – known as ‘SG1’. Mace’s impressive scheme brings £350m of private investment into the town.
