Latton Priory housing plans – do you want to take part in the latest consultation?


What future for this chunk of land? (pic www.lattonpriory.co.uk)

Latton Priory is one of four new neighbourhoods planned for the proposed Harlow and Gilston Garden Town, south of Harlow in the parish of North Weald Bassett.
The garden town scheme was approved by Harlow, Epping and East Herts councils in December 2018. Yes, the idea has been around a long time – indeed the site was identified as a potential expansion to Harlow in 1963. The garden town is expected to eventually grow to 23,000 homes, with Latton Priory providing at least 1,050 of them.
Although on the edge of Harlow, the site lies within the boundaries of Epping Forest District Council, which will make the final decision on planning.
A consultation on the Latton Priory Strategic Masterplan Framework has been opened up by the council and ends on Monday, January 23, so there’s still time to have your say.
