Bishop's Stortford Neighbourhood Plan Newsletter No. 17

Welcome to the seventeenth newsletter from the Bishop's Stortford Neighbourhood Plan Team.

***Neighbourhood Plan for All Saints, Central, South and part of Thorley Parish***

The second Neighbourhood Plan is now well underway with the findings from the survey and focus groups providing valuable input. We will soon have a first draft although the plan is at an early stage and is likely to undergo several changes between now and the final document.  It is now more important than ever for us to get your views and opinions.  The Neighbourhood Plan allows everyone living or working in Bishop's Stortford to have a say in the future shape of the town so please have your say. We will be publishing the various sections of the plan, initially by subject, on our website at Please do let us have your comments, postive and negative, by either commenting via the website, writing to us or emailing us with your comments.
