Development of this site also provides the opportunity to resolve flood risk issues, both onsite and off-site, downstream and upstream.
The site will be connected to Harlow Town Centre and the wider Garden Town by safe and attractive pedestrian and cycling routes as well as a rapid bus transit service which will run along a dedicated corridor.
The land at East Harlow is proposed for development as part of the Garden Town within Harlow District Council’s Submission Local Plan and Epping Forest District’s Submission Local Plan. The Local Plans are currently awaiting the outcome of Examinations in Public, which was held earlier in the year. Early Masterplanning work for the site has commenced and public consultation will be undertaken at various stages in the process.
