MORE than 80 potential housing sites have been uncovered in Welwyn Hatfield - and none of them are on Green Belt land.
Planning officers at Welwyn Hatfield Council have found room for more than 3,000 new homes, mainly on brownfield sites.
As the Welwyn Hatfield Times has previously reported, the borough faced the daunting prospect of at least 10,000 homes forced upon it by the Government, but this decision was successfully challenged by Hertfordshire County Council earlier this year.
Totals are now being reassessed. It is hoped the 4,400 properties already built between 2001, when the 10,000 homes were originally mooted, will be included in any new target.
