HERTFORDSHIRE County Council has given its reaction to the news that 10,000 homes will no longer be built in Welwyn Hatfield.
A council spokeswoman said: "On Wednesday, May 20, judgement was given in relation to Hertfordshire County Council's High Court challenge relating to strategic growth proposals in the East of England Plan 2021 at Harlow, Hemel Hempstead, Hatfield and Welwyn Garden City.
"Legal advice indicated that there were legitimate grounds to lodge a challenge, principally on the failure of the Strategic Environmental Assessment to consider reasonable alternatives to the four strategic growth proposals.
"Hertfordshire County Council's challenge in the High Court relating to Hemel Hempstead, Hatfield and Welwyn Garden City was successful.
