HTS, the new company set up by Harlow Council to provide a range of environmental and property maintenance services began work on Wednesday morning.

It was a wet, miserable day but the staff went out on their first day on a full stomach as alfresco bacon sandwiches were provided.

Leader of Harlow Council, cllr Jon Clempner cut the ribbon on what is hoped is bold new step forward for Harlow residents.

YH spoke to cllr Clempner and managing director, John Phillips.

Services previously delivered by Kier Harlow Ltd are now provided by HTS (Property & Environment) Limited.

The move will help towards saving money while also giving the Council flexibility to meet its future financial challenges.

The company is headed up by Managing Director, John Phillips, and Non-Executive Chair of the Company Board, Michael Harrowven. Three Councillors – Bob Davis, Simon Carter and John Strachan – have also been appointed to serve on the Board of the company.
