THE resurrection of the Hatfield town centre regeneration scheme seems to have taken yet another tentative step forward.

Welwyn Hatfield Council has announced that the first public consultation on the revised scheme could be held as soon as autumn this year.

Since recruiting architects Haskoll to the project in July, the council, developers St Modwen and the Homes and Communities Agency have been in discussions over viable options to improve Hatfield.

These options have now been presented to interested businesses and leading councillors, as well as MP Grant Shapps and parliamentary candidates Mike Hobday and Paul Zukowskij.
