A question and answer meeting between Stevenage Borough Council and leaseholders – who face bills of up to £20,000 for a major revamp of flats across the town – has been cancelled due to “unprecedented demand”.

The much-anticipated meeting was set to take place on Thursday next week at the Ibis Hotel in the town centre, but has been postponed until further notice. A Stevenage Borough Council spokesman said: "We have listened to your feedback and are cancelling this event while we plan a bigger programme of meetings to accommodate a greater number of leaseholders.

"Due to unprecedented demand, we have had to disappoint quite a few people that wished to attend.

"By holding several events we believe we can provide a better opportunity for all leaseholders to have their concerns addressed.

"We will be in contact with you in the near future with details of future events."
