Wellesley Residents – Community Right to Bid (CRB)

Within days of the Residents Association at Waterhouse Moor hearing about their successful application to Harlow Council in respect of land at St Andrews Meadow, residents at Wellesley have heard that their application in respect of land adjacent to their estate has also been accepted by Harlow Council.

A CRB would give residents the opportunity of purchasing this land (priced in it’s present condition), in the event that Harlow Council decided to sell it to the house builders who are looking to build hundreds of homes just over the Harlow border in the Epping Forest District Council area. The land in question forms a green ‘buffer’ between the Harlow and Epping area, one which residents wish to see continue to exist in the future.
