Have your say

We’ve listened to all of the feedback we’ve had about Gilston Park Estate

From the outset, we have been working with the Local Authorities, other key partners, the Parish Councils and the Neighbourhood Planning Groups to review the proposals at the relevant stages. We have received a lot of feedback and have made amendments to our applications in response. These amendments were submitted in November 2020, and continued amendments made to the emerging Strategic Landscape and Village 1 masterplans on an ongoing basis. East Herts District Council has completed a public consultation on the changes as part of the planning application stage.
