Harlow and Gilston Garden Town
The Harlow and Gilston Garden Town sits in the heart of the UK Innovation Corridor, which offers an unparalleled opportunity in an exceptional location close to London, Stansted Airport and Cambridge to deliver both housing and economic growth, and to build on the area’s key strengths as the next global knowledge region in the UK.
Harlow and Gilston was designated as a Garden Town by the Ministry for Homes, Communities and Local Government in January 2017 and will comprise new and existing communities in and around Harlow.
Set in attractive countryside, with transformative investment in transport and community infrastructure, new neighbourhoods to the east, west and south and new villages to the north will be established.
East Herts, Epping Forest and Harlow District Councils are working together with Hertfordshire and Essex County Councils to ensure plans for the Garden Town support sustainable living and a healthy economy; provide a good quality of life for existing and future residents; and respond to local landscape and character.
