The planning application to East Herts District Council (EHDC) is requesting permission for a 1,254 sq m store with 127 car parking spaces, accessed from Gascoyne Way.

The chain has said the store would create a potential 50 jobs in the town.

It is thought Which? will remain at the site until 2018, meaning if granted planning permission, the store would open in 2019.
Highways England has not objected to the plans and there has likewise been no objection from Hertford Town Council – however, councillors have requested the car park offers two hours of parking instead of the one and a half hours specified in the plans.
Councillors have also asked for conditions to allay concerns about traffic.
EHDC will make a decision on whether to grant planning permission.
