Letter to local Parish Councils on Areas of Special Restraint (ASRs)  Map  New!

8 February 2011

Dear Chairman,

I enclose a paper I have written on behalf of the Bishop’s Stortford Civic Federation as part of our submission to East Herts LDF consultation. It concerns EHDC’s intention to permit about 3,000 houses to be built on the land between the Tesco roundabout and our northern by-pass.

This would have, in our view, disastrous effects on traffic congestion in the town but would also have deleterious effects on your village’s population. I hope, therefore, that your council could join us in opposing this scheme.

I would be pleased to attend to a meeting of your council to answer questions on the paper if you felt that this would be helpful.

Yours Faithfully,


Michael Hurford
President,
Bishop's Stortford Civic Federation
