Sharing planning consultation data across council boundaries


  1. Project timeline

Led by Epping Forest District Council, this discovery will provide an assessment of how planning consultation data for the proposed Harlow & Gilston Garden Town (HGGT) can be shared and used. HGGT will be developed across five council boundaries and will be delivering 23,000 new homes around Harlow by 2044. This growth will see Harlow’s population rise by 50,000.

This analysis will improve consistency and enable the five councils to have a unified approach for the development of the proposed new town.
