Market Square is now undergoing a major facelift to transform it into a mixed-use area and restore it to its former glory.
Contractors are now on site and the works are under way.
The facelift will see the removal of the decking features and playground that were installed as part of the Harlow Renaissance project in 2011. The square will be restored to its former glory, reinstating the original floor design by Fredrick Gibberd albeit with a colourful contemporary twist. Following this, a range of contemporary concrete street furniture, including colourful canopies, table tennis and chess tables, and public access Wi-Fi, will be installed to create an environment that is suitable for all ages offering a place to meet, relax and enjoy Harlow Town Centre.
The red pots that have formed part of Market Square’s landscape are making a return but will be repositioned and replanted with suitable trees to add some greenery to the area.
