Re: Enterprise Car Rental Closing

thats a shame, but there's a brand new one this side of welwyn. They do offer collection, i guess that means they'll now collect you from hertford? is this about them trying to empty the caxton estate, rather than anything to do with the business not making enough money? Likely so. It’s housing app...

Re: Railway Street

That’s the one. The signs have come down and are inside now and they are building a division close to the window so it looked as though they are setting up for something but I could be wrong. The only signs I can see inside are estate agents boards for the flats. And the partition you mention is be...

Re: Railway Street

Does anyone know who will be taking up the retail space on the corner of the development at Railway Street? Notice that the to let signs have been taken down, and building work going on inside, so wondered what was going in there? Do you mean on the corner of St.John's Street? I've never seen a To ...

Interesting that the new trains being introduced at Hertford East are 10-car units with 1100 seats.

Re: Bircherley Green

Is it known what the archaeologists are looking for/found? It's standard practice for archaeologists to be given access to sites of interest when demolition takes place. I doubt they were looking for anything specific - just taking the opportunity to see if the site clearance unearths anything. It ...

Re: Bircherley Green

At present many of those I talk to have difficulty understanding why the first part of the project seems to spend so much time moving piles of demolished building back and forth around the same plot when you have closed the car park to move to the next phase’.

Re: A414 Corridor Consultation

It was a journalist chappie. He pointed out that a major driver for dealing with Gascoyne way is pollution. And the plan is supposed to run till 2033. By which time we'll all be driving electric cars. So the pollution problem will just magically disappear. And driverless cars will mean that the tra...
