The regeneration of Hitchin's Churchgate could be one step closer after it was decided to put an expression of interest bid to the government's Future High Streets Fund.

Plans for the rejuvenation of former Hitchin department store Hawkins were revealed at a consultation event last week.
High streets minister Jake Berry was given a guided tour of Hitchin yesterday as he discussed North Herts District Council's plans for the regeneration of Churchgate.
