An aerial shot of Stansted Mountfitchet


Let us know which you consider Stansted Mountfitchet to be by taking part in a short, single question poll.


Our population grew by close to 38% to 4,664 between 1961-1970, and 50 years on we are home to nearly 10,000 residents.

Against that backdrop, does the size of our population mean we should be thought of as a town, albeit one deserving of better community assets and transport infrastructure?

Or do our sports facilities, play areas, shops and public amenities mark us out as a village, albeit one with a large population?


The poll is part of the consultation we are currently holding with residents about the Development chapter of the Neighbourhood Development Plan. You can read more about the NDP by going to this page:
