82 flats and 11 car parking spaces. That should be enough.

The average married couple or partners tend to have a car each this could equate to 164 cars,plus the overspill from the other block of flats rediculus

Lack of car parking spaces is a joke, there should be at least one space per bedroom, plus visitor parking

Squeeze them all in!!! What a joke. I'm not against housing people as we know its needed, however what with this being built along with others and the new road over the river, Harlow is no longer a green space. Cant wait to move out of Harlow!! :(

It’s a complete joke the planning department happy for all this to go ahead, all my son wanted to do is a small extension to make his house more livable for his family, no neighbours to effect, but was told no it’s green belt😡

How about you stop building flats and houses for your own selfish financial gain and focus on filling up the potholes in the road and making more parking spaces available for existing neighbourhoods where parking is a struggle!! Idiots
