Plans for Stevenage town centre redevelopment go on show
Placards showing what a regenerated Stevenage town centre could look like were displayed in a variety of locations around town by Stevenage Borough Council this week.
Along with the Stevenage First partnership , the council hopes a developer will pledge £250 million for the first phase of the project called SG1, to turn the Town Square area into flats, new shops, council offices, a library and community facilities.
It is hoped building could start in 2020 in conjunction with a complete regeneration of the railway station and the creation of a fifth platform.
Much depends on whether the government decides to grant £50 million for the station which has been applied for buy Herts LEP.
A decision is expected in the government’s autumn statement.
