East Herts Council marks completion of 28 affordable homes at Coopers Grange development in Bishop's Stortford





East Herts Council and housing association Metropolitan Thames Valley Housing (MTVH) have completed 28 affordable homes at Coopers Grange, the 160-home estate off Hadham Road in Bishop's Stortford.

Of these properties in Patmore Close, 18 will be rented at an affordable rate to local people on the council's housing register, with the rest available for shared ownership.

The two- and four-bedroom houses and one- and three-bedroom flats each have access to an electric vehicle charging point, in line with the council's push towards achieving a net zero carbon district.
