Public Consultation at York House on 11 December

December 5, 2012
We received the message below on December 5th a note from GCE advising us of a meeting next Tuesday 11th which is an important opportunity for us residents to express our views on the landscaping proposals for Salisbury Square. We are owed apologies from someone for the short notice, but please come if you can.

"We would like to invite you to a public consultation in York House on Tuesday 11 December to discuss the latest developments for Salisbury Square, and Old Hatfield generally.

In April 2012 a public exhibition was held to present the development proposals for Old Hatfield and the fully consented plans for Salisbury Square. In July 2012 First Capital Connect and Hertfordshire County Council presented plans for the re-development of Hatfield Railway Station and the A1000.

Now Gascoyne Cecil Estates would like to present three landscaping proposals for Salisbury Square and are keen to gain feedback prior to evolving a final design. Hertfordshire County Council will also be presenting the current plans for revised footpaths and the A1000.

The consultation will take place on Tuesday 11 December between 12- 8pm in York House, Salisbury Square, Old Hatfield. 

We very much hope that you will be able to visit the exhibition to view the proposals and gain insight into plans that will regenerate Old Hatfield." 


This message from Anthony Downes, Gascoyne Cecil Estates  (Anthony spoke at the last Residents' Association meeting in York House on November 8th)
