Dear Editor, THIS year’s local elections take place at an important crossroads as the town looks to define its future in a post-COVID world. The last 12 months have tested the resilience of our community. Harlow rallied together to confront COVID-19 head on. The action…

Sir, Given this scenario much of the town centre looks to be lost cause. Better go with and develop an ultra green town strategy. Traditional town centres create congestion. The answer is to create 3 or 4  centres around the town perimeter that have park and ride…

Dear Editor, I am writing to ask when the building at the Pinnacles will be finished. The noise from the building of this warehouse has my autistic son in a mess. I myself, can’t stand the constant noise and all my neighbours are distressed from…

THE HARLOW Alliance Party has offered their “solution” to the challenges facing libraries across the town. A spokesperson said: “Save our Libraries Essex has, to date, failed to publish our response to the prospect of changes to the library service across Essex, despite publishing the…

Dear Editor, DO the Conservatives really mean we will get a live music venue? I saw the recent Conservative promo video on here and I was quite impressed, but do they really mean everything they say in that video? It’s all well and good making…

Dear Editor Re: The recent discussion in Your Harlow concerning the state of the Town Centre. Some of what has been said I agree with. The northern half of the Town Centre is in a very poor state indeed, shops empty, Market gone, buildings neglected…

Dear Editor I AM a Labour Party member and I will not be voting for the Labour candidates for District Council, County Council, and Police Commissioner in Harlow on 6 May. None of the candidates in my ward have publicly or privately expressed support for…

THE PORTFOLIO holder for Transport, cllr Danny Purton, who is also a councillor for Mark Hall, has written an open letter, slamming the record of the cllr Mike Garnett, who represents Harlow North on Essex County Council and the ward of Old Harlow. Dear Editor…

Dear Editor, IT has recently come to my attention that Burnt Mill School is offering weapons training to school children. It is absolutely shocking that the school I used to attend is now grooming children for the military. It is utterly obscene to train young…

Sir, WHY didn’t successive administrations in Harlow think about transport, (perhaps because it’s controlled by Tory Essex CC) and why have Conservatives Essex wasted nearly a billion pounds on successive developments to the A414 that have failed? Why wasn’t Doug Patterson’s plan for a ecologically…

Sir, I HAVE been surprised to look at Labour Council election leaflets and find no mention whatsoever of this grand project. Harlow Metro, linking Gilston, Harlow and Epping. It was only on June 30 2020, in the midst of the Covid-19 pandemic that Harlow Labour…

Dear Editor, I AM deeply concerned for the local small businesses of Harlow recovering from this pandemic. The Labour-run Harlow Council has mindfully neglected businesses when it comes to distributing the grants. Central government gave them the allocation based on data of local businesses. They…

Dear Sir, IT is astounding how constant criticism of Harlow Town Centre has gone unheeded for years. In fact, it has deteriorated consistently leading shoppers living on the fringes of the town to switch their custom to nearby towns such as Epping, Hoddesdon and Bishop’s…

Sir, Re the recent planning meeting and the decision regarding Netteswell Hall Cllr Danvers, I think that hit the nail on the head with his comment. It is indeed development by stealth, neglect and decay. Profit before people and the environment. Whilst new homes are needed, here is…

Sir, IT has been heartening to see the town wide efforts of Harlow’s wonderful “Womble” groups. The daily posts on social media showing the sacks of rubbish collected by groups of volunteers suggest that the community spirit fostered during the pandemic may become a welcome legacy…
