Second exhibition for stansted development consultation

A HOUSEBUILDER is to hold a second exhibition over its proposals to create a new residential development in Stansted Mountfitchet.

Taylor Wimpey said it has responded to feedback from residents by laying on an extra exhibition, which will take place at Stansted Free Church in Chapel Hill, between 7pm and 9.30pm on Thursday February 7.

It follows an earlier consultation event at St John’s Church Hall, on St John’s Road, which is being held between 1pm and 6pm on the same day.

The new exhibition has been arranged following concerns raised by members of the public that they would be unable to attend the exhibition during the day.

David Edwards, senior strategic planning manager for Taylor Wimpey, says: “We have received a number of comments from people who said they would not be able to come along to our exhibition between 1pm and 6pm because of work commitments, and suggested that we offer a further opportunity for them to inspect our plans and provide us with their feedback.

“We have taken these comments into consideration and decided to arrange a second exhibition later in the evening at the nearby Stansted Free Church in Chapel Hill.

“The same material will be on display at both events, and people attending either exhibition will be able to speak to members of the Taylor Wimpey project team about our proposed residential development at Bentfield Green. Details of our scheme will also be available online at from Thursday February 7.”
