Theses houses are unaffordable to most of us... Theses are mostly unaffordable to those who are a bit better of than most.. . Harlow council does not even benefit from council tax, it all goes to Herts and Epping. All we get is the vandalism of the River stort valley, and the disruption, and pollution of more vehicles on the road. Epping and hearts , we'll its not on there door step is it,, but we will reap the benefit s.
