Hatfield charities relocated ahead of building demolition

CHARITIES at a condemned Hatfield building will be relocated from next month.

The Bill Salmon Centre will close on March 31 ahead of the first phase of the long-awaited Hatfield town centre regeneration programme.

The first phase of the scheme will see the centre demolished and replaced with a four-storey building comprising five retail units on the ground floor and 15 flats above.

Work is due to begin later this year, but in the meantime Welwyn Hatfield Council has agreed new locations for the organisations that have had to move.

Both HertSavers Credit Union and Councils for Voluntary Service (CVS) will move to 40 Town Centre, Hatfield.
