Presumably for good. Until the development is complete and the new car parking area is opened.

Losing that many car parking places all in one go is not going to play well with the town centre.

I have seen some Twitter correspondence with EHDC on this subject and it advised that “Bircherley Green's owners proposed closing the car park before xmas but, after exchanges with East Herts Council, have delayed this to the New Year. We discussed with them the possibility of operating the car park but they advised that it must close for demolition works. They were unable to specify when these works happen or any certainty beyond a month at a time. It is impractical to operate this car park on a month-by-month basis accepting all the associated liabilities. We are aware that car park use had fallen significantly and that it is due to reopen when it has been refurbished. We are concerned about the closure of the car park and its impact on Hertford town.” which clearly shows it is very proactive on behalf of traders and shoppers.
