The pressure to build on green spaces in Harlow will no doubt increase in years to come, property developers see a profit, Harlow Council will always seek ways of raising money.

The Harlow Alliance Party has already helped many residents across the town to request of Harlow Council what is known as  Community Right to Bid (CRB), which if accepted by the Council, is placed on a register of such assets. In the event that the Council seeks to sell the land to a property developer, it must first offer this sale to the group of residents, who in turn must undertake to maintain it as an open space.

We will continue to offer help and advice to any resident group who share our concerns about the loss of public space to developers who might wish to see a CRB
