Public Turn Out - Town Hall & Museum to open in May
On Wednesday 9th March over 60 members of the general public turned out in force at a public meeting held at The Sun Hotel in Hitchin. The meeting was organised by myself in conjunction with members of a public social media group pertaining to the long running saga over the controversial Hitchin Town Hall & Museum. North Herts District Councillors and representatives of Hitchin Town Hall Ltd were in attendance to answer questions from the public. However, just a few days prior to the public meeting a press release was issued by NHDC announcing that the facility will now open in May 2016. The Town Hall opening will be the first of a three phase approach the Council has adopted following its dispute with Hitchin Town Hall Ltd and the Appointment of a Receiver. Timings for the second and third phases are subject to legal and contractural proceedings being successfully concluded.
