So they get an award for having a vision, What's that choking Harlow with yet more traffic. Just another back slapping exercise on the network.

HGGT, preserving the Environment, loll .Tell that to the people who tried to save our river stork, from a 4 lane road going straight across it. Tell that to all the old trees that your ripping up, Tell that to all habitat s being destroyed, Tell that to the ecco systems being destroyed. Who hands out theses award s, who votes you to get it? Not the people that live here. All we see are unaffordable housing estates. 5000 people waiting on homes in Harlow.

Logg-rolling consultants patting each other on the back. What a bunch of parasites.

Awarded by their backers, what a surprise! Greenwashing and whitewashing all in the same pot.

Thanks to Harlow Labour for signing up to this venture in 2017 and confirming it with the Stort Crossing in their Dec 2020 Local Development Plan.
