Simmons Bakers, currently located in The Arcade, will move into the former pound shop Beecharm, on the corner of White Lion Square, in order for work to begin on revamping the town centre.

The first phase of the scheme will see The Arcade renovated and expanded, with two additional retail units added to the end of the parade.

A new four storey building comprising five new retail units and 15 residential flats will be built on the site of the demolished Bill Salmon Centre.

Welwyn Hatfield Council chief executive Michel Saminaden said: “The relocation of Simmons is a critical milestone in preparing for delivery of Phase One of the redevelopment plans for Hatfield town centre.

“By taking up their new residence, Simmons will enable the redevelopment of the entrance to The Arcade to begin, alongside redevelopment of the old Bill Salmon site.”

Work to refurbish Simmons’ new unit is expected to begin shortly, with the copmany moving into the premises in June.

Simmons will continue to trade from its current location until then.

As part of a wider programme, the large raised flowerbed outside the entrance of the new Simmons will be flattened early next year.
