HARLOW Council has responded to residents’ concerns over crime and disorder in Market Street, Old Harlow.

A Harlow Council spokesperson said: “We share residents’ concerns about the ongoing incidents of anti social and criminal behaviour in Market Street. We are already working closely with the Essex Police and only last Thursday in response to residents’ concerns, we met with the Police to discuss what further can be done to address the issues.

Last weekend a dispersal order was put in place by the Police and they are committed to deploying extra resources in the area leading up to Christmas and the New Year.

Our Licensing Team has visited the pubs to talk to Landlords about their responsibilities and the seriousness of the ongoing situation. We have had feedback from residents that these measures contributed to a much quieter weekend in and around Market Square last weekend.

We will continue to monitor the situation closely working with the Police to play our part trying to deal with issues such as this.

“As the Authority that issued the licences, we can only review the pubs’ licences if residents and or the Police call for a review. We have received requests for extending the CCTV coverage to include parts of Old Harlow. We are giving this serious consideration, which includes identifying funding.”
