THE whistle has been blown and Kier Living Eastern is set to score a try as work starts on an exciting new development at Harlow Rugby Club’s former ground.

Kier Living Eastern will build 125 properties at the Elizabeth Way site in Harlow, 40 of which will be affordable housing.

These will include a selection of two, three and four bedroom houses and two bedroom flats.

The award-winning housebuilder worked in partnership with Harlow rugby club and Harlow council to create a brand new £6 million purpose-built building for Harlow Rugby Club at Latton Park, just two miles away, to replace the old one, which was no longer fit for purpose.

The new location is more central to Harlow and part of the corridor of sports facilities for the town which already includes football fields and the Harlow Sports Centre.

David Thomas, sales and marketing director for Kier Living Eastern, said: “The developments in Harlow have been five years in the making and we are very excited to be getting started on the residential element now the new rugby club is completed.

“We have worked closely with the local community on this project in order to create a close-knit development, which is integrated with local life in Harlow.

“We have been able to create a fantastic club for the Harlow Rugby Club at the Latton Park site with state-of-the-art facilities and we very much look forward to seeing the club continue to thrive.”

In addition to the new rugby club at Latton Park, Kier Living Eastern will create a children’s play area, on the residential site at Ram Gorse as well make financial contributions to public art, playing fields, health and education.

Andy Clements, project manager for Kier Living Eastern, and Hollie Howe, planning manager for Kier Living Eastern, were at the site in Elizabeth Way for the turf cutting event to mark the start of the development build.

The new development will be in close vicinity to the beautiful 19th century Saint Mary the Virgin Church of England, located in Parndon Mill Lane, which is Grade II Listed.
