Hitchin Town Hall multi-million pound project go-ahead
LAST night (Monday) marked “history in the making” as, after seven years of planning, councillors agreed to proceed with a multi-million pound community project.
At a special council meeting, a raft of recommendations were agreed in relation to Hitchin Town Hall. The facility will be revamped for community use, with a district museum added.
After agreeing to enter into legal agreements and loaning Hitchin Town Hall Ltd money, it means work can start to appoint a building contractor.
Councillors and residents praised the scheme, and a celebration party was held afterwards in the council offices.
The estimated completion date now is November 2014.
