I’ve lived in Harlow since 1997. During recent times, it has become very clear that common sense and the concerns of so many Harlow residents are being ignored.

We have been ignored by the developers whose only aim is to build houses, regardless of how the Town will struggle to cope with the huge increase in population that this over development will bring.

Existing social housing is poorly maintained with residents waiting months and even years for repairs to be carried out.

The level of need for affordable housing for Harlow residents is unmet in any of the new development plans.

Concerns about the negative effects of the huge level of development on our Town’s existing environment have been dismissed.

We have been ignored by the politicians who were elected by us to represent our local concerns. It’s time for a change, it’s time for Harlow’s residents to be heard.
