Hatfield town centre redevelopment proposals
A scheme for the redevelopment of the eastern end of Hatfield town centre was approved by Welwyn Hatfield Borough Council in 2010. Here you can view some of the approved plans and find out more.
The council's Planning Control Committee resolved to approve the plans on 15 April 2010. Whilst a first phase of development has been delivered, the wider scheme requires further funding if the plans are to become a reality. Although the council has committed investment to the scheme from the Growth Area Fund received from government, continued economic issues mean that there is still a shortfall in funding. To allow any further phases of development to proceed this gap must be resolved and the council is exploring all avenues to bridge this gap.
Some plans of the proposed scheme are available to download below.
The approved scheme has been designed to be flexible, so that it can be delivered as a whole or implemented on a phased basis, as market conditions dictate. The proposals would see the creation of a central High Street for the town, offering modern shopping and living. The scheme also maintains an anchor store for the eastern end of the town centre, along with a new town square, new bus interchange, taxi rank, public toilets and residential units.
