Prior to Strawberry Star’s purchase of the site a previous planning consent was secured for its redevelopment by the former site owner in 2018.
Strawberry Star’s proposals include a range of significant enhancements to the previously approved plans, that crucially will ensure the development is deliverable and the regeneration of this central part of the town centre can be a reality.
Strawberry Star have already secured a new planning consent for part of the site adjacent to the Harvey Centre and West Gate, known as ‘block D’. The new consent, granted by Harlow District Council in 2019, ensures a more efficient use of the site than previously approved with more homes, greater use of the site footprint, and better internal lay outs for apartments.
The height of the block D building will also step up from west to east, with the tallest building closest to the town centre (rather than the other way around as in the previously approved plans), an objective echoed through the new plans for the wider site.
