Images of the new buildings being constructed in Hatfield Town Centre have been published this week by the UK’s leading regeneration specialist St. Modwen, which is heading up the development in partnership with Welwyn Hatfield Borough Council and the Homes and Communities Agency. 
The new images show the shops and homes being constructed at 88 Town Centre – the former Bill Salmon Centre – as well as the two new buildings at the northern end of The Arcade facing White Lion Square. 
Piling work to lay the foundations for 88 Town Centre will be completed this month and foundation works will begin on the Arcade buildings in the coming weeks. 
Work to upgrade the old St Albans Road between the two sites, including new paving and street furniture, will also start later in the year, with all the works on schedule for completion by Spring 2014. 
A dedicated webpage on the Hatfield Town Team’s website – – has also been set up which will provide the latest updates on the project. 
Gary Morris, Senior Development Manager at St. Modwen said: “As well as providing bigger shops and new homes these modern buildings are going to make a big difference to how the town centre looks, helping to make it more attractive to businesses, shoppers and visitors. 
“With these images we wanted to give people a taste of what’s to come, as we continue with work on the buildings ahead of completion next year.”
