Bishop’s Stortford North
Welcome to this website which we have set up to provide information on the planning and design of the development of land within the A120 bypass to the north of Bishop’s Stortford that has been identified for longer term housing needs since the mid-1980s.
Following the extensive consultation and detailed technical and environmental studies that were carried out in 2012, the Bishop’s Stortford North Consortium and the landowners submitted an outline planning application to East Hertfordshire District Council in January 2013 for a sustainable mixed use urban extension, modelled on the modern Garden Suburb approach, to include up to 2,200 new homes.
Planning permission for the first phase of homes was granted in April 2014. To read the full story please click here.
The process of acquiring the development site is ongoing and we are hoping this will be completed in 2017, with the first new homes expected to be released for sale in 2017. Further information about the properties will be made available from each developer closer to the time of the launch.
