Initial outlying planning permission was approved by the secretary of state in 2012.
But the planning committee met last night to consider a number of the “design and details”.
A number of residents had attended the meeting and spoke. Each one referred to a number of issues such as flooding, preservation of archaeological finds and siting.
But many pointed to the fact that the plans did not include a health centre or doctors surgery at all.
One of the speakers (who did ask not be named) said: “There are 715 dwellings to be built on top of Old Harlow and no health centre. The Old Harlow centre is under enough pressure, without this being added to it.
Cllrs Sue Livings (Cons) and cllr Jean Clark (Lab) voted against the proposal but three councillors voted for.
No joint up thinking.
