Bishop's Stortford Neighbourhood Plan 1st revision - Newsletter No. 1

Thank you for subscribing to the Newsletter regarding the first revision of the Bishop's Stortford neighbourhood Plans.  Full details of the progress of the revision can be found at

Following a leaflet drop to all residents in the Neighbourhood Area (which comprises the whole of Bishop's Stortford and a part of Thorley parish) we have been inviting comments on our initial proposals for revision.  108 responses were received, the team are currently analysing the results and would like to thank all respondents.  An exhibition was held in Jackson Square during early November, sadly plans to staff the exhibition had to be abandoned due to Covid restrictions however it stimulated much off the feedback.  The exhibition will be maintained at the Tourist Information Centre throughout November.

The next steps, following analysis of the feedback, will be to refine the amended policies and objectives and create the second draft plans.  This will be followed by a further stage of consultation which will take place early in 2021.  This second stage is the formal consultation required under ‘regulation 14’ of the relevant regulations.  Members of the public as well as a wide range of organisations will be invited to respond.

If you have any questions about the Neighbourhood Plan or wish to comment further please email and someone will contact you to discuss.

Yours sincerely

The Neighbourhood Plan Team
