MAJOR plans that may change the shape of Harlow for the 21st century will be discussed at Harlow Council on Thursday night.

The Local Plan is a plan for the future development of the local area, drawn up by the Local Planning Authority. It guides decisions on whether or not planning applications can be granted. In law, it is described as the development plan documents adopted under the Planning and Compulsory Purchase Act 2004.

Every council has to have one. If they do not agree a plan then the housing numbers can be imposed by central gvvernment. Several councils in Essex have already had written warnings regarding this

Basildon Council had a number of seven hour meetings.
Epping District Council Local Plan has been halted by a legal challenge.

Many of the big plans that could affect Harlow are not in Harlow. Gilston, Sumners Farm and Latton Priory to name just three.

However, there are a vast number of proposals in the town.

On Thursday night, it is proposed that: “Council approves the Harlow Local Development Plan 2018 for publication and consultation under Regulation 19 of the Town and Country Planning (Local Planning) (England) Regulations 2012 (as amended).

If voted through, Harlow Council can kick-start a six week consultation period plus opportunities for others to make representations.
