Your response to the Gilston Area Planning Applications

Please, before you go on holiday ………

The Neighbourhood Plan Group is working hard to review and make general representations on the three planning applications made by Places for People. We will publish this shortly and would welcome any endorsements of our viewpoints by you as residents and or businesses.

It is important that, if you have any concerns over the potential impacts of these proposals on your home, access and local facilities that you record these concerns directly with East Herts Council, before 9th August (we know that some of the consultation period is in the peak holiday season and have made the point that running a consultation exercise over late July early August is unhelpful to residents). Now however is the time to make sure your views are known to our Council before they determine the applications.

In essence the applications cover:

The Outline application (quote planning reference number 3/19/1045/OUT)

Seeks to secure the basic agreements for 6 out of the 7 villages planned to be built North of the Stort Valley and the A414 Gilston and comprises up to 8,500 residential homes and facilities. If you live near one of these proposed villages then they, their construction and associated infrastructure may affect your home and or business. The development will be constructed over the next 20 to 30 years.

The Eastern Crossing, (quote planning application reference number 3/19/1051/FUL)

Aims to secure a detailed consent to reroute the A414 from Harlow right through the middle of Pye Corner and Terlings Park into Harlow with a new bridge over the River Stort. It makes Pye Corner a cul-de-sac.

Central Stort Crossing (quote planning application reference number 3/19/1046/FUL)

Widens the existing access and road/rail bridge into Harlow from the Eastwick roundabout and proposes a high-level bridge for pedestrians and cyclists.

Things to possibly think about in any response you make:

  • Have you been adequate consulted on the direct impact of these proposals on your home or business?
  • Are the new facilities proposed what you would expect?
  • Will the building works impact on your home or enjoyment of the local countryside?
  • Will the changes to access work for you?

Responses can be made via or by letter to East Herts Council Planning Department, Wallfields, Pegs Lane, Hertford SG13 8EQ using the above references.

Full details of these applications can be found at using the above references and are available in printed form at East Herts Council Planning Department, Wallfields, Pegs Lane, Hertford SG13 8EQ.
