COMMUNICATION channels between bosses overseeing the delayed development had not broken down, according to a council spokeswoman.

Concerns have arisen after Welwyn Hatfield Council leader John Dean told the WHT last week that he was not informed about the postponement of Hatfield town centre plans by his officers.
