Yet more development for the Town

Posted: Mon, 10 Feb 2014 08:43 by Clerk's Office

Last week EHDC approved the application by Pigeon Developments to develop north of Park Farm. Technically the majority of this land lies in Cottered Parish with only the Care Home and link road within Buntingford. As it stands, the S106 development money and the New Homes Bonus could all go to Cottered with no benefit to Buntingford.
Despite the concerns of the Town Council and others, EHDC have stated the development must start within 2 years. This means that this, the Taylor Wimpey and Wheatley Homes will all be building at the same time. We can only hope the developers will seriously consider their plans so as to limited the detrimental effect of all the construction traffic.
