Statement from Leader of the Council, Hatfield Town Council

At an extraordinary Full Council meeting at Hatfield Town Council, held on Tuesday 14th May 2024, a proposal was put forward to pause the implementation of the Birchwood Community Sports Project (incorporating the Herts Football Association Hub). This would allow further ideas to be developed and accommodated. However, opposition councillors successfully put forward an amendment to stop the project completely.

 

The Labour administration is shocked and saddened that this coalition of opposition councillors have taken this £1 million plus investment opportunity away from the community without any clear ideas or alternative credible proposals. The Labour administration will continue to work on its inclusive community health and wellbeing initiatives across Hatfield and seek to revisit this matter after the standard 6 months have elapsed to review Town Council decisions and motions.
