Plans are afoot to develop flats in a historical part of Hatfield.

A planning application submitted to Welwyn Hatfield Council shows that developers hope to turn numbers 1 to 5 Park Street, in Old Hatfield, into four flats.

A seven-minute walk from Hatfield station, opposite the Eight Bells pub, and just a stone’s throw from Hatfield House, the Grade II-listed stucco building has also been a shop and offices throughout its history.

Two other applications to change the offices to flats have been submitted since 2017, but these were refused.

In the last application, which was turned down in January 2018, objections were raised by Hatfield Town Council due to a lack of parking, with the additional comment that any changes should be in keeping with the surroundings.

Environmental Health also objected saying that the developers needed to submit an acoustic report.

In the current application, the developers have applied for a Certificate of Immunity from Listing.

You can view and comment on the application by searching the register at with the reference 6/2018/2497/FULL
