News / Sun 22nd Dec 2019 at 04:27pm
TWO of Harlow’s senior Conservative councillors have welcomed proposals by the government planning inspector to remove a number of green areas from plans to build in the town.
The areas that have been recommended to save are as follows:
Land East of Katherines Way, west of Deer Park – reinstate as green wedge
South of Clifton Hatch
Kingsmoor Recreation Centre
Land east of 144-154 Fennells – council to consider designation as a small additional area of green belt
Land between Second Avenue and St Andrews Meadow – reinstate as green wedge
Playground west of 93-100 Jocelyns
Land between Barn Mead and Five Acres
We spoke to Old Harlow councillor Joel Charles in the Jocelyns area of the town.
We then travelled across town to speak to Sumners and Kingsmoor councillor, Russell Perrin about the recommendations regarding the Fennells area of Harlow.
Anyone else getting a sense of deja vu? https://www.yourharlow.com/2019/12/21/letter-to-the-editor-harlow-alliance-party-role-in-saving-our-towns-green-spaces/ Thanks, HAP for all your efforts and dilligance.
Readers will be aware of my letters and comments on yourharlow about what the Conservative Party are saying about Harlow Council's Local Plan, but these two Councillors also refer to their concerns about the Local Plan of Epping Forest DC which will see thousands of homes built on Harlow's East, South and West borders. So did they object to Epping Forest DC about these Plans which would then have enable them to express these to the Government appointed Inspector who held her Examination between February and June of this year. No, of course they did not, indeed to my knowledge no Harlow Councillor attended any of the many days that this examination took place when the future of Harlow was being debated in the Civic Offices in Epping. But who did both of these things ..... you guessed it .... the Harlow Alliance Party, standing up for all the residents living on Harlow's borders who were not consulted about these Plans by either Harlow or Epping Councils. Boris Johnson gets accused all the time of telling "porky pies", it seems that Harlow's Conservative Councillors are taking a leaf out of his book!
