Harlow District Council is in the final stages of preparing ‘Harlow Town Centre Area Action Plan’. This is a planning document which marks an important step towards regeneration of the town centre. The Action Plan will provide the framework to guide development and secure the regeneration of the Town Centre for the period up to 2033. The role that the Town Centre performs across the Garden Town is key to the Action Plan.
As a formal planning framework, the Action Plan must be approved by the Government.
Prior to finalising the Action Plan, and submitting it to the Government for consideration, the Council will consult local residents and stakeholders. Public consultation on the ‘issues and options’ was carried out in the summer of 2018 and the document will be published again, ahead of it’s submission to the Planning Inspectorate for examination in the Autumn.
