Jocelyns public meeting – update

The Party’s fourth public meeting took place today close to the open area between Jocelyns and Broadway Avenue, which Harlow Council has included as a housing development site in it’s Local Plan.

Twenty five residents braved the wind to hear from our Party Leader what is happening in respect of the Local Plan and this area in particular. The government appointed Inspector begins the Hearing on 28 March and will be dealing with the plans for individual sites on the 3 April.

HAP will continue it’s objections to 8 of the sites proposed around the town which Harlow Council wants to see houses built on. In the meantime legislation dating from 2011 is to be used to try and get some protection for this land which may stop homes from being built on it.

Watch this space for more details in the coming weeks.
