HARLOW Council’s environment boss, Councillor Nicky Purse, is carrying out a town-wide landscape audit by inspecting works being carried out by HTS under its winter programme. The audit is part of the council’s priority to restore pride in Harlow’s estates and neighbourhoods.
Ward-by ward visits help to identify the need for follow-up work after the maintenance programme work has been completed.
Councillor Purse will be visiting the site to address long-standing landscaping maintenance issues.

After recent visits to Sumners Katherines and Bush Fair Councillor Purse said:
“The landscaping works across the town have not been good enough for far too long. Hedges, bushes and trees have not been properly managed. This is why I will do everything necessary to rectify the situation and restore pride in our estates.
“The Council will not accept poor quality work or any areas being left and I will leave no stone unturned to ensure that the work done is up to the standards we require.
“There is much more work to be done, but we will do whatever it takes to fully restore pride in our wonderful estates and give Harlow the attention and TLC it deserves.”
