Having received detailed planning permission for the first 142 homes of this 750 home scheme in December 2019, work on the Bishop’s Stortford South development – to be known as St James’ Park – is entering an exciting new stage.

 

In August Countryside begins the infrastructure work necessary to facilitate the building of the relocated Bishop’s Stortford High School and construction of the school itself will commence in late September.

Also in September 2020 we will be constructing an access road from Whittington Way for the first housebuilding phase, due to start in October 2020. Between October and December we will be carrying out improvement works at the Whittington Way roundabout, then starting work on the footway at Whittington Way and Obrey Way in January 2021, when we will also be carrying out works on the St James Way roundabout for the first three months of the year.
