A steering group that was formed to help guide the development of three sites in Sawbridgeworth has praised the process, saying that it helped them improve the sites for residents.

Sawbridgeworth has been allocated 500 houses as part of the East Herts Local Plan, across sites run by three different developers.

However, local councillors during a meeting of the East Herts District Council (EHDC) executive on Tuesday (July 17) praised the process that had led to improvements to the plans for residents.

Councillor Eric Buckmaster, who sits on the executive and chaired the steering group, said: "This was a new process for us but there were many positives.

"I have heard it said that if you hadn't had this process we might not have found out about these issues until a much later stage."
