East Herts District Plan - IMPORTANT consultation

The Stop Harlow North campaign is busily working away preparing for the East Herts Council District Plan Preferred Options Consultation. This next consultation will run from February 27th to May 22nd.


Please go to our Preferred Options Consultation page to either use our online response form or otherwise see how you can respond.

East Herts Council must prepare a District Plan to guide development for the district. Currently the Plan includes the following Policy "GA1 Land in the Gilston Area" which states that "To meet long-term needs, land in the Gilston Area is identified as a Broad Location for Development".

Once identified as a broad location for development there will be no defence against any future planning application. We need to ensure a massive response rejecting the principle of development in the Gilston area

This site presents the aims and objectives of the STOP Harlow North action group.  We are dedicated to positively and actively opposing proposals to create a major development north of Harlow around the Hertfordshire villages of Eastwick, Gilston, High Wych, Hunsdon and Widford, and the town of Sawbridgeworth, on the basis that the locality needs:


To protect our environment. Greenbelt is there for a reason and should not be built on until all other alternatives have been exhausted.


To protect the unique identity and historic character of rural villages


A better Harlow, not a bigger Harlow. Any development north of Harlow will compete with the existing town and hamper its regeneration


To bring back fairness and democracy in the strategic planning process.

If you support one or more of these aims then please contact us by e-mail to find out how you can help ...or keep visiting this site for updates
