Response

(1) When the purchase was completed;

The purchase has not yet completed. The restrictions on our registered title have now been removed by the Land Registry following this Council's purchase of the site on Old River Lane, Bishop's Stortford. The removal of the restrictions was the only matter holding up the completion of the sale to Network Rail. The Council's solicitor has written to Network Rail's solicitors asking them to confirm we can now proceed to completion.

(2) How much was paid to EHDC for the land;

This value will remain confidential until the sale has completed at which point the value will become public via the Land Registry.

(3) The extent of the land, on both east and west of the railway, which was purchased.
