A statement from East Herts Council re the withdrawal of CityHeart's planning application

“We are aware that CityHeart has decided to withdraw their current application for Old River Lane.

"Our planning teams work with developers to achieve the best result for all stakeholders within the constraints imposed by planning legislation, policy and financial viability. Positive talks have been held with CityHeart over recent months to ensure that the development plans meet the council’s aspirations for the site, and we expect a new application to be submitted in due course.

"Our top priority remains working together with CityHeart and the wider community to deliver our vision of a high quality, mixed-use development that is worthy of Bishop’s Stortford.”
