Letter to prospective members

The following letter went out to prospective Chamber members on October 3rd.......

There have been many important developments in Harlow in recent years.  

The most significant was the recent announcement of the new enterprise zone that will create many opportunities for local businesses. But there is still a lot we can do to make Harlow an even better place to do business.
Just some of the issues facing the town in the coming months are:
·    How to take advantage of opportunities presented by the 2012 Olympics.
·    Generating trade through the Town Centre redevelopment
·    Saving time and money with transport upgrades (mainly around the M11 corridor)
·    Increasing efficiency with improvements in broadband provision

I am writing to invite your company to join Harlow & District Chamber of Commerce to ensure that you and your company can play a part in decisions that will be made about all the things that are going on in our area.


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. 

Harlow EZ

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.
