Forster Country Park Statement, Reserved Matters Application
"Far from there being a ‘secret plan’ for a new, exciting Country Park in the North of Stevenage, there will be open consultation so that all local people can have their say.
"To share the background, a planning application was received in 2017, for the development in the North of Stevenage. This included proposals for a new Country Park for all residents to access and enjoy. This application was approved by the Council’s Planning and Development Committee. Some elements, such as layout and landscaping, were required to be considered again in the future by the Committee, through what is known as a Reserved Matters application.
“At the time, the Committee made it very clear that the proposals for the Country Park must be of the highest of ecological and environmental standards, and respect local heritage including that of E.M. Forster.
“The Council has received the proposed Reserved Matters application, including the proposed layout of the country park, and is carrying out public consultation. All residents are encouraged share their comments.
“We look forward to hearing your views on how, together, we can ensure this country park is an asset to the whole community in Stevenage, before the application is considered by the Planning and Development Committee.”
