Harlow and Gilston Garden Town will bring up to 10,000 new homes and new employment opportunities to the London Stanstead Cambridge Corridor within a setting that makes the most of the natural environment. The new garden town will spur growth not only in the immediate area but also more widely in Essex and Hertfordshire.
As well as homes and jobs, there will be new schools, health facilities and green spaces, all within easy walking, cycling and commuting distance. Harlow Council, East Hertfordshire District Council and Epping Forest District Council are working together to develop the new garden town.

The Harlow and Gilston Quality Review Panel is chaired by Peter Maxwell, Director of Design, London Legacy Development Corporation.
