What do you think about the Bishops Stortford North Development Plans?

Developers have announced plans for large new housing developments on the north side of Stortford, in the areas around the Hadham Road, Cricketfield Lane and Dane O'Coys Road.  The proposals are for around 2,200 houses.

What do you think about the proposals - are you for or against?

If you are not sure, there is a chance to find out more and give your feedback at two events planned for next week.

The events will be held at the Charis Centre in Water Lane on Friday, September 21 from 2pm to 7.30pm and on Saturday, September 22 from 10am to 4.30pm.

For those who know that they are opposed to the developments (and this includes several of our church members), an internet petition opposing the development went online this week.
The Save our Stortford group says: “Bishop's Stortford is an historic market town. It is in danger of being over-developed and over-stretched if large scale housing developments on Bishop's Stortford countryside go ahead."
