Consultation on plans to rejuvenate (north hub) Watford Town Centre

Local people, businesses and visitors are being invited to share their views on the council’s plans to regenerate and enhance the stretch of the town centre that runs from the ring road flyover to the Town Hall and surrounding area.

The plans, known as the Watford High Street and Cultural Hub masterplan, set out an exciting range of proposals that will transform the top of the town, bringing increased footfall, more attractive open space, improved parking and quality new homes.  At the same time, the masterplan puts forward ideas for the long-term future of the Town Hall building (as high end hotel) and the Watford Museum and Heritage service (with a new, modern Museum building in the cultural hub area). 

Elected Mayor of Watford, Peter Taylor said:  “In Watford, we have a vibrant and busy town centre. However, we have to keep improving it to make sure this continues for years to come. I have already received a lot of feedback on the proposals in the masterplan and would encourage everyone to get involved and share their views.  This is a really important project for the town. What people tells us will shape the final plans so we can get this right for Watford and for our residents and businesses. ”

The consultation runs until 13 September 2019 and there are a number of ways people can get involved:
