HARLOW Council has defended its plans to plant five trees in the Market Square at a cost of £50,000.
The subject was raised at the most recent meeting of the ruling Labour group’s cabinet meeting.
Eagle-eyed Conservative councillor for Church Langley, Simon Carter pointed to a section in the agenda called ‘Planting in the Market Square”.
It detailed that the widely criticised red planters would be removed to be replaced by “A minimum of five trees are planted in the ground at Market Square, Harlow Town Centre and funding of up to £50,000 be allocated from the Town Centre Regeneration Reserve”.
Cllr Carter quizzed the portfolio holder for regeneration, Cllr John Strachan about the plans.
