If you are having trouble using the system, please try our help guide.



Following the formal period of Regulation 18 consultation of the Issues and Options report, the Council will consider comments received in the round. Drawing on this feedback, and building on the "direction of travel" identified under each policy theme in chapter 6, the project team will prepare a full draft of the AAP

for review with stakeholders and publication for statutory representations.

This will include more detailed principles and guidance for key sites and areas in the Town Centre including illustrative material as appropriate.

The representations will be collated alongside the AAP for submission to the Planning Inspectorate in advance of the Examination in Public and, subject to the incorporation of any modifications as directed by a Planning Inspector, Adoption.

How to respond

The new Area Action Plan for Harlow Town Centre will contain Strategic Policies which provide overarching guidance and framework for the Town Centre, supported by Policies which provide more detailed planning guidance. The AAP is being prepared in accordance with national legislation and guidance, including the Town and Country Planning (Local Planning) Regulations 2012 (as amended), the National Planning Policy Framework (NPPF) and National Planning Practice Guidance.

We are now consulting on the Issues and Options stage of the AAP which sets out an emerging direction of travel for the AAP. You can submit comments on this document at www.harlow.gov.uk/planning-policy
