Unanimous Approval for Harlow Town Centre Regeneration

Harlow Council Planning Committee has unanimously resolved to grant planning permission for the exciting, new mixed-use regeneration scheme for the north side of the town centre. The area will be completely transformed with a new residential community alongside an open air, boulevard style shopping area and beautifully landscaped public spaces. The existing West Gate ‘gateway’ into the town will connect through to Broad Walk, providing cohesive access to the central shopping area.

“It will transform this part of the town, which has long been in need of such investment. We will be providing nearly 450 new residential homes centred around landscaped public spaces with easy access to open-air boulevard shopping.
Martin Roberts, Principal and Co-Founder, Addington Capital

The design scheme combines boulevard shopping, landscaped public realm and residential

The Little Walk and Gatehouse Parade area of the centre will be demolished, to make way for four new buildings ranging in height from three to sixteen storeys.

“We are pleased to have secured a resolution to grant planning permission for this exciting mixed-use development which will provide new homes and an enhanced commercial offer and public realm. The scheme will not only significantly regenerate this part Harlow Town Centre but will act as a catalyst for further regeneration of the area.”
Claire Clark, Associate, Rolfe Judd

The new centre will have a range of 447 residential units, 4,000 sqm retail space, car and cycle parking, balconies, courtyards and roof terraces.
