Hatfield Town Council unveils plans for the transformation of Birchwood Leisure Centre


Preliminary plans for the site of Birchwood Leisure Centre and floodlit pitches for Hatfield Town FC have been shared with the public. With four pitches, the scheme promises to return the club to its home town as well as providing space for Hatfield Boxing Club, junior netball clubs, martial arts, dance and recording studios, as well as new catering facilities and meeting and function rooms. The plans also include 54 new one and two-bedroom flats on the site of the existing car park, with a separate site entrance plus 68 parking spaces. A new 110-space car park is proposed to the east of the existing leisure centre.
Saunders developed the plans under consultation with Welwyn Hatfield Borough Council, Hatfield Town Council, The Herts Sports Partnership, the Football Association, the Football Foundation, England Netball and the Amateur Boxing Association.
“A tremendous amount of work has gone into getting where we are, I am sure the people of Hatfield will see how this will benefit the whole community and publicly get behind the plans.”
