Public meeting on future of Welwyn research site

WHAT should happen to the former Welwyn GlaxoSmithKline research site?

That’s the focus of a public consultation tonight (Monday) as residents are asked there thoughts on the future of the Frythe site, which was bought by development company Lands Improvement for �15m, in December.

A spokeswoman for Lands Improvement said they want to hear the public’s opinion at meetings both tonight at 5pm until 9pm and on Saturday between 10am and 4pm.

She said: “We have now started to consider options for the reuse and/or the redevelopment of the redundant research and development land.

“We recognise that any redevelopment proposals will need to be carefully considered and will need to take account of the unique landscape and the Frythe building.
