A Welwyn Hatfield Council project to renew and regenerate Hatfield has been shortlisted for a national award.

The council is shortlisted for a Local Government Chronicle (LGC) Award for its work securing a £6m Local Enterprise Grant, spending £15m to improve the environment in Hatfield and buy key sites, and setting up the Hatfield 2030+ partnership to create a vision for the town’s future.

Stuart Pearson, the council’s head of housing operations, has also been shortlisted in the ‘Rising Star’ category for his role shaping services for the future.

The winners will be announced at an awards ceremony in March next year.

Council chief executive Rob Bridge said: “Gaining this kind of recognition on a national stage is such a fantastic endorsement of our work in Hatfield.

“I’m also really pleased to see one of our many dedicated officers celebrated for their contribution.”
