About Harlow

Harlow 

 

 

 

Harlow is a new town and local government district in EssexEngland. It is located in the west of the county and on the border with Hertfordshire, on the Stort Valley, The town is near the M11 motorway and forms part of theLondon commuter belt. At the time of the 2011 Census, Harlow's population was recorded at 81,944. The Office for National Statistics estimated that Harlow's population in June 2012 was 82,700. Harlow has good transport links being only 30 miles from London via the M11 motorway and the town is on the main railway line between London Liverpool Street and Cambridge. Harlow is only sixteen miles away from Stansted Airport and can again be accessed quickly via the M11 motorway heading north.

Economy

 

 

Harlow was originally expected to provide a majority of employment opportunities in manufacturing, with two major developments of The Pinnacles and Templefields providing the biggest employers in the region; as with the rest of the country, this manufacturing base has declined and Harlow has had to adjust.

The original manufacturing took the form of a biscuit factory, on the Pinnacles. Owned and run as a Co-Op, it provided employment to the town for over 50 years, before closing in 2002. It has since been demolished and the site is now small industrial units. At its peak, the factory employed over 500 people. At the time of its closure, the owner was Burton's Foods Ltd. An £8million production line – installed in 1999 – was left to rust in the car park upon the closure of the factory.

Raytheon and GlaxoSmithKline both have large premises within the town. Nortel also had a large site on the eastern edge of the town, acquired when STC was bought in 1991, and it was here that Charles K. Kao developed optical fibre data transmission. Nortel still has a presence, but it is much reduced. One of Europe's leading online golf stores, Onlinegolf, is also based in Harlow.

Unemployment is frequently around 10%, higher than the national average in the UK. Harlow also has a large number of people in social housing, almost 30% of dwellings being housing association and local authority owned, and many more privately rented.


 

 

 

Transport

 

 

Rail

 


Harlow is served by two railway stationsHarlow Town railway station and Harlow Mill railway station. There is also a bus service to Epping tube station on the London Underground.

Road


 

Harlow is reached from junction 7 of the M11 motorway, which runs from London to Cambridge, placing it within a short distance of Stansted Airport and the A120 and the orbital M25 motorway. Running through the town is the A414, a major road from Hertford to Chelmsford and linking the town with the A10 to the west. This road is often a cause of major congestion to the town and is awaiting a decision of both a southern and northern bypass to the town, with the Harlow North proposal including the latter as part of its bid to secure planning permission for 8,000 homes to the North of the town. It is unlikely to be built in the near future however. Another major road running from Harlow is the A1184, which also leads to the nearby town of Bishop's Stortford.

 

Air

 

 


Bishop's Stortford is the closest large town to London Stansted Airport, though Harlow is only 10 miles from this major transport hub, and therefore provides several hundred airport employees. The airport operator, withdrew a planning application for a second runway after the General Election of 2010, when all major political parties opposed it. .

Bus

 

 


Harlow Bus Station

Harlow has an extensive bus network and serves as a regional hub for the local area, with operators such as TGM Group- Network Harlow, SM Coaches,Roadrunner CoachesRegal Busways, Logic Bus, LCB Travel and TWH Bus & Coach.

 

 

 

 


Education

 

 

 

St. Nicholas School is an independent school located in the town while Harlow College provides sixth form and further education.

Brays Grove Community School and Specialist Arts College closed down in June 2008 due to decreasing pupil numbers over a number of years. Following the schools closure, the site was demolished and redeveloped into a £23 million state of the art Academy which Passmores School and Technology College relocated to in September 2011 opening as Passmores Academy.

In the 1980s a further two secondary schools were closed, Latton Bush (now a commercial centre and recreational centre) and Netteswell (now forms part of the Harlow College Campus) is a major further educational centre, covering GCSE's, A-Levels, and many vocational subjects including Hair & Beauty Therapy, Construction, Mechanics, ICT, and a new centre for Plumbing due to open. The college is currently under major regeneration and is due to open a new university centre in partnership with Anglia Ruskin University, covering mostly Foundation degrees in a variety of subjects relevant to local employers needs.

Memorial University of Newfoundland also has a small international campus located in Old Harlow.
