22 Aug PHE unveils plans for science campus in Harlow
Plans for a world-leading science campus in Harlow are a step further forward after Public Health England submitted a planning application to Harlow District Council following extensive consultation with stakeholders and the local community over the last 18 months.
Made up of more than 3,000 documents and nearly 300 drawings and images, the outline application sets out PHE’s vision for turning the former GlaxoSmithKline site at the Pinnacles Industrial Estate into a centre of excellence for public health research, improvement and protection.
If approved, the plans will see PHE co-locate most of its current facilities at Porton in Wiltshire, Colindale in north London and its central London headquarters to a single, state-of-the-art science campus.
PHE Harlow will bring together experts in cancer, mental health, nutrition, smoking, alcohol, diabetes, dementia, infectious diseases, environmental hazards and climate change.
