North East Herts MP Oliver Heald held a most constructive meeting with traders from The Wynd. This gave him an opportunity to narrow down the remaining issues concerning relocation packages for traders. Oliver is now arranging a further meeting with Heritage Foundation Director General Stuart Kenny in order to discuss the points raised.
Commenting, Oliver Heald said, “This was a most constructive meeting and I believe will be helpful in the process of ensuring that the independent traders are retained in the town centre as development plans go ahead. I was also able to reassure traders that North Hertfordshire District Council will want to examine detailed plans for their relocation as part of the planning process. The Council will also have to consider the detail of the development plan to ensure that it fits in with the needs of the Garden City.”
