A £3.65m programme of improvements to Hatfield town centre has taken another step forward.

Planning consent has now been granted for the refurbishment of White Lion House and White Lion Square.

White Lion House will be given an improved interior, new windows, and a new external staircase, together with new refuse storage facilities.

Detailed drawings are being prepared so the works can be submitted to the tender process.

The bulk of the existing canopy in White Lion Square will be refurbished.

There will also be new lighting and shop fronts.

Some retail units will also be given extensive internal refits.

Work is expected to start soon and be completed in 2016.

More detailed options for improvements to the public space in White Lion Square and leading up to 1 Town Centre will be available soon to view and comment on at the Hub.
