On 13 September last year Harlow Council agreed it’s Local Plan, which sets out where new homes in the town will be built during the next 13 years or so.
21 sites were identified of which 8 were ones that the Harlow Alliance Party felt should remain open recreational and play spaces. All of these were designed at the time the town was conceived to provide space in between estates so that children have a safe place to play close to their homes.
Despite the petition given to Harlow Council organised by The Harlow Alliance Party, signed by over 380 residents across the town, all 21 sites identified including Deer Park and Pollard Hatch were included in the plan.
A public meeting is to be held by The Harlow Alliance Party to explain what this means for the future of the site and what action could be taken to try and stop building from taking place.
The meeting will be held in the entrance to the field from Jocelyns on Saturday 16th March at 10.30am.
It is vital that residents continue to show their opposition to these plans and we hope that you will be able to attend the meeting despite the time of year and possible bad weather. We do not anticipate a long meeting.
