Traffic & parking have been modified in Welwyn Garden City town centre for a trial period from 21 May to 17 June 2018. Here are the details from the council’s flyer:
“Hertfordshire County Council in partnership with Welwyn Hatfield Borough Council and supported by Welwyn Garden City BID are developing a scheme to enhance the area around Welwyn Garden City town centre. The aim of the scheme is to improve the environment for pedestrians and cyclists, to enhance the experience for people using the town centre and to reduce traffic circulation. We would appreciate your feedback to help inform the scheme. Please find the consultation drawings and survey available on our website at the link provided. The project team will be on site on 26th May from 10am-2pm and 11th June 3-7pm to discuss the proposals with the public.
Consultation 21 May 2018 – 24 June 2018
Trial Period 21 May 2018 – 17 June 2018

The biggest change is the removal of motor traffic from half of Stonehills – now a much more pleasant place to walk through or sit out and enjoy some refreshments!
Whatever your views, please take the opportunity to provide feedback to the council so they can make an informed decision. WelHatCycling are strongly in favour of improvements like this, and have contributed ideas to make the town centre an even more pleasant and safe place to visit.
