Dear Ms Dobson


I am writing on behalf of the Bishop's Stortford Civic Federation to request that the Council does not approve the masterplan for the redevelopment of this site at its extraordinary meeting on 29 January. Our reasons for making this request are as follows:

‘A Masterplan will be collaboratively prepared, involving site promoters, landowners, East Herts Council, Bishop's Stortford Town Council and other key stakeholders.’

So far as the Bishop's Stortford Civic Federation are concerned the authors of the masterplan have provided only token observance of this requirement. We were invited to only one meeting of the steering group and learned only by chance that a masterplan was being tabled for approval at this week’s Council meeting.

I would be grateful if you could draw this representation to the attention of all Councillors before they meet on 29 January.

Yours sincerely

John Rhodes
