Lawyers for parents fighting to keep a Hertfordshire centre for disabled children open say they've been given a reprieve.
Alex Rook, from Irwin Mitchell, told the BBC: "I am delighted to say that the CCG (clinical commissioning group) has agreed to set aside its decision to cease funding respite services at Nascot Lawn.
"They have confirmed that they will consult with the families of children and young people before thinking again about the matter."
Nascot Lawn Respite Centre in Watford was due to close in October, but that date has been pushed back to January.
We have yet to hear from Hertfordshire CCG, but when the decision was first made it said the closure of the centre was necessary because of its "serious financial situation", and that the focus must be on spending on services it had a legal duty to provide.
The decision comes ahead of a planned judicial review next week, where health executives were being taken to the High Court for failing to consult with the families.
Watford MP Richard Harrington said: "Although this is very welcome news, there is more work to be done to protect this service for our local community. I want to see a long-term solution and that's what I will be working towards over the coming months."
Mark Watkin, Lib Dem councillor, said the move was "cynical".
