The Civic Federation exists both to represent our many members and to campaign for a better Bishop's Stortford: a market town that operates within its own limits to growth, with a thriving market, good schools within the town, employment and training opportunities and a place where we feel safe and can enjoy ourselves, whatever our age or ability.

We are NOT simply against development but FOR appropriate development that takes us towards our aims.


You can also email us or contact any of our committee members. For more details, including our objectives, see our About Us pages.
