Why Move to Harlow?
One of several post-war new towns designed to house the overspill of residents whose homes were destroyed in the Second World War, Harlow continues to go from strength to strength, adapting to the needs of its expanding population.
Surrounded by stunning rolling countryside close to the Essex border with Hertfordshire, its affordable and sizeable properties hold serious kerb-side appeal for families looking to ditch the urban sprawl in search of a more attractive place to raise a family.
The town centre was the first in the UK to become completely pedestrianised and many of its neighbourhood shopping facilities have undergone major redevelopment.
Far from just another urban settlement, Harlow was designed to prioritise green space and is surrounded by Green Belt land with over one third of the district parkland or fields containing public footpaths.
Adding to the picturesque surroundings is the mass of world-class public artworks which have paved the way for the town becoming the first ‘sculpture town’.
As a town in the outer part of the London Commuter belt a large proportion of residents commute south daily from Harlow into the capital.
Direct trains (from Harlow Town or Harlow Mill stations) to London Liverpool Street run regularly and take approximately 30-40 minutes.
The town is also served by the M11 motorway which connects residents to Stansted Airport and Cambridge.
Whether you choose to settle in the new town or reside in the peaceful surrounding villages, Harlow has all the amenities you would expect of a modern expanding town and benefits from a variety of leisure and entertainment facilities.
Combine these features with spacious properties and ‘Good’ schools, as judged by Ofsted, and you have all the makings of well sculpted place to live.
Working in Harlow
Locally the town offers employment opportunities in manufacturing sites and retail premises.
Harlow Enterprise Zone is one of 45 locations across the country, designated by the UK Government, to provide incentives for investment. It occupies a strategically significant site between London and Cambridge, with its proximity to London Stansted Airport making it a premier business location.
Major investment has also been made in public health science with the creation of new world-class public health labs in Harlow.
It is hoped that the Zone will stimulate innovation and generate economic growth for the town.
US defence contractor, Raytheon and pharmaceuticals giant, GlaxoSmithKline both have large premises within the town and one of Europe’s leading online golf stores, Onlinegolf, is based in Harlow.
Many firms take advantage of the M11 and the nearby A10 linking Harlow with London, Cambridge, Stansted Airport and the M25.
