We are strongly against the proposed Waste Transfer Station on West Road in the Temple Fields, Harlow

We want Essex County Council to reconsider the plans to build the Waste Transfer Station on West Road.

The location proposed is completely wrong. It’s near a school and many businesses that do not want a Waste Transfer site built next to them.

The right location would be near a motorway junction with good links to the rest of the county. The A414 in Harlow is already very busy and overuse due to Harlow only having one junction to the M11.

The local businesses and residents are against having over 100 daily traffic movements added to an already congested area.

The location would be far better used by local small businesses and not what Essex County Council has proposed. Essex County Council needs to find the right location.
