The future of B&Q in Welwyn Garden City has become uncertain.

The lease on their Bridge Road East branch is up for renewal in October 2024, and the landowner is considering ending the lease and building flats in its place.

Being one of the few hardware stores in the town, the removal of B&Q could be bad news, putting the employment of those working at the store at risk. Others argue that building new homes is more important.

I'd like to hear your views

Should the DIY site remain as a hardware store or be given over to housing?
