Fresh plans to turn Welwyn Garden City town centre’s former Post Office premises into a restaurant have been submitted.

The Howardsgate site has been empty since its closure in October 2016, but proposals on behalf of Oakman Inns and Restaurants have been put forward to reopen it.

Oakman Inns says it specialises in the concept of a “modern public house”, aiming to provide “the perfect environment to come and enjoy great food and drink whilst catching up with friends, family, neighbours and colleagues”.

The application states: “Oakman Inns and Restaurants has a track record of creating and running attractive and thriving

establishments locally and the proposed development will help ensure the viability and long-term future of the building, while making a positive contribution to the vibrancy of Welwyn Garden City.”
