A HOUSING developer threatened with court action has been given a stay of execution, after finally beginning building work.

Barratt Developments erected flats and shops at Parkhouse Court on the former aerospace site in Hatfield.

But as part of the deal with Welwyn Hatfield Council it promised to provide recycle bins, cycle stands, bins, tables and bollards as well as landscaping.

However months on and with court action looming, work had still not been carried out.

The matter was discussed by councillors at a planning meeting on Thursday, but a letter from Barratt advised work had now begun.

Officers will review the matter in April.

* Plans to change the former Howe Dell School site in Old Rectory Drive, Hatfield, back into a house were also discussed by councillors.

Despite concerns about two protected species - bats and great crested newts - the committee granted permission.
