There have been a number of formal applications made by the two developers involved in the Gilston Area project: Places for People (Gilston Park Estate) and City & Provincial Properties (Briggens Estate).
You can read the full applications, all supporting documents and all responses from residents, the NPG and other stakeholders at the East Herts Planning Portal.
Developer Places for People recently submitted its long-awaited revisions to its planning applications
The NPG has responded to these revised applications, and you can read the response in full here.
We also hosted a community Zoom webinar on the revised applications on January 11. You can download the presentation slides and watch in full below.
For reference, links to the applications on the East Herts Planning Portal are provided below:
We are still awaiting the revised planning applications from Briggens Estate for Village 1.
Below are direct links to the pages for each of the applications, along with a bitesize descriptions and links to the NPG’s formal responses.
This application from Places for People 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.
This application from City & Provincial Properties seeks to secure the basic agreements for Village 7, to be built on land off Church Lane and the A414 in Hunsdon and Eastwick, Hertfordshire and comprises up to 1,500 residential homes and facilities.
The NPG has expressed its overall objection to this outline planning application for Village 7 of the Gilston Area as presented in the application.
The application from Places for People seeks 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.
The NPG has expressed its overall objection to both detailed applications for the Eastern Crossings of the Stort Valley as currently submitted. It later maintained its objection to the revised application.
The application from Places for People aims to widen the existing access and road/rail bridge into Harlow from the Eastwick roundabout and proposes a high-level bridge for pedestrians and cyclists.
The NPG has expressed its overall objection to both detailed applications for the Central Crossing of the Stort Valley as currently submitted. It later maintained its objection to the revised application.
