New enterprise zone gets Government approval

The Government has selected Harlow as one of ten further flagship areas for business growth, giving the green light to ambitious plans to create a new 126-acre enterprise zone with the potential to create up to 5,000 new jobs.

The Department for Communities and Local Government is giving Harlow Enterprise Zone status following ambitious proposals put forward by Harlow Council and the West Essex Alliance.

At the heart of Harlow's plans is the vision for a medical technology, advanced manufacturing and other high tech company cluster on two major areas of land in the town.

They are:

  • A 57-acre mixed use site at London road, including the former Nortel campus and land to its north.
  • The 69-acre industrial area covering the north eastern corner of Templefields.

Both sites are designated as employment land and are owned by a small number of private companies who have supported the EZ application.  The Harlow plan has the backing of the South East Local Enterprise Partnership (LEP), which covers all of Essex, Kent, and parts of Sussex.
