A NEW youth shelter could be on the agenda for Buntingford.
Buntingford Town Council have drawn up a list of three possible sites for the shelter: Norfolk Road playing fields, Hare Street Road playing fields, and the Seth Ward Community Centre.
Town clerk Jill Jones said: "A shelter would provide a gathering point for young people, and would hopefully help with the prevention of crime and anti-social behaviour.
"A lot of the villages have them and they have proved very popular.
