Plans have been drawn up for the regeneration of Hatfield's Market Place, and you can have your say at drop-in events this weekend.

Welwyn Hatfield Borough Council hopes the new public space will provide a welcoming and inclusive place for people of all ages, while also helping to support local businesses by encouraging more visitors and longer visits.

Residents, local businesses and visitors will have an opportunity to view the initial designs and give their feedback at special drop-in events on Friday, February 23 and Saturday, February 24, from 10am to 4pm in The Hub in Hatfield Town Centre.

"The relocation of the Hatfield General Market presented an opportunity for the development of the new public space, with a focus on families, which I am sure will be a wonderful addition to the town centre," said councillor Jane Quinton, executive member for planning.

"The council would like to hear the thoughts and opinions of as many people as possible on the designs for the new space.

"I would encourage residents and local businesses to pop into one of the drop-in sessions and have their say on the new proposals."

The development is part of the wider Hatfield 2030+ regeneration programme, which aims to encourage more people to visit the town and make it more attractive, with the White Lion Square and One Town Centre projects already being delivered.
