02 Jan Harlow neighbourhood shopping centre to get £3m facelift
A Harlow neighbourhood shopping centre is set to get a £3m facelift!
Work will start next week on the regeneration of Prentice Place in Potter Street.
Harlow Council has appointed Vinci Facilities to oversee the £3m project which will start on Monday 8 January 2017.
Councillor Tony Durcan, Portfolio Holder for Regeneration & Enterprise, said: “The work will not only transform a neighbourhood area that has been part of Harlow since the mid-50s but also make it a safer and pleasant place for people to live, shop and visit. I know for local residents and retailers this project has taken far too long, but the new year heralds a new start for Prentice Place. The neighbourhood centre will be part of Harlow’s future for years to come.”
The scheme has been registered with Secure By Design which sets standards for how developments can be secure and design out crime. It is hoped that the scheme will achieve a gold award and to help with this all new lighting will be LED to allow for CCTV to easily pick up clear pictures.
