This year’s awards will celebrate and honour the places and people that have kept Harlow Town Centre going in the last 18 months. The awards, which are organised by Harlow Council, were first launched in 2017, but not held last year due to the pandemic.

Councillor Dan Swords, cabinet portfolio holder for regeneration, said: “We will be bringing forward major plans for the regeneration and renewal of Harlow town centre. That is not a tinkering at the edges, but a complete rebuild to ensure our town centre is one of the best in Britain.
“The existing businesses and people who make our town centre will all have a part to play in its exciting future. The last 18 months has been an hugely challenging time for all those involved in the town centre. That is why this year’s awards will celebrate and recognise the people, places and businesses who have kept the town centre going and continued to serve residents and businesses.“
The headline sponsor for the awards are McBains who working with the Council on a number of housing developments and regeneration projects across the district.
Mark Leeson, Operations Director at McBains, said: “McBains is proud to be working closely with Harlow and its communities to deliver real improvements to Harlow and the Town Centre. We are therefore delighted to sponsor the Harlow Town Centre Awards, and in particular put our name to the ‘McBains Best Place in Town’ award. Recent events have ensured we all have a greater appreciation for places in the local community and we are honoured to recognise the well-deserved nominees in this category.”
