Redevelopment of Thompsons Close

Posted: 10th December 2008, 3:31pm

To all Harpenden Members of the Chamber of Commerce

Redevelopment of Thompsons Close

A redevelopment scheme has been proposed for Thompsons Close in Harpenden Town Centre.

If or when such proposals are processed into a formal application, your Board would like to have the opportunity of expressing an opinion on the Chamber’s behalf in any press releases from both commercial and environmental viewpoints.

We would like very much to take into account any comments you might wish to make, but would particularly like to express a “Chamber view”.  We require your approval for us to do so.

However, at this stage, the Board feels that a redevelopment as indicated would be very much in the interests of trading in the Town Centre.

Design Brief


Car Parking Issues

Similarly, we would like your approval for us to express a “Chamber view” on a range of car parking issues that shopkeepers and traders in the Town Centre feel would assist their ability to trade more effectively.

At a recent meeting between local High Street businesses and SADC Council officers, traders expressed their frustration at the lack of progress on any parking issues that might assist the growth of business in the Town Centre; they have sought our assistance in progressing this issue.

If you have any comments please contact the Chamber Administrator, Lisa Bates on 01727 863054.
