UP to 1,000 homes could be built on the site of a WGC airfield.

Mariposa Investments, which owns Panshanger Aerodrome, held a series of exhibitions across Welwyn Hatfield last weekend, to advise residents of its plans to develop the site.

A planning application is not expected any time soon, but the company confirmed it wants to see the site included in Welwyn Hatfield Council's core strategy for future growth.

Around 400 people attended over the course of the weekend and feedback forms were made available to allow residents to have their say.
