Following a significant increase in substance abuse at the Cemetery Toilets the police have recommended that they be closed for a short period to discourage mis-use. The closure will take place over the festive season. Bishop's Stortford Town Council regrets the need to take this action due to the anti-social behaviour by a small number of people.
A revised draft of the Neighbourhood Plan for All Saints, Central, South and part of Thorley Parish is now published and can be downloaded from the Neighbourhood Plan pages at www.stortfordplan.org . A Neighbourhood Plan cannot prevent development which forms part of the East Herts Council District Plan and has to operate within a legal framework. However, it can shape that development so that it complements the existing character of the town and helps to ensure that the necessary infrastructure is provided.
