Harlow Enterprise Zone

Delivering innovation and enterprise at the heart of the London – Stansted – Cambridge corridor


Harlow is a superb location for business, located between London and Cambridge, with the Enterprise Zone site less than 5 minutes from the M11. Fast train connections mean that London Liverpool Street can be reached in 35 minutes and Oxford Circus in 45 minutes. The town is just 15 minutes from Stansted Airport with its extensive connections throughout Europe and its global freight business. Harlow is now confirmed as the location of Public Health England’s National Science Hub which will help to provide an enhanced Life Sciences focus for the town.

Business Activity:

Harlow Enterprise Zone is capitalising upon two of the town’s existing strengths – Advanced Manufacturing and Life Sciences. The Anglia Ruskin MedTech Campus, to be located on the Enterprise Zone, will provide one of the world’s largest health innovation spaces for companies of all sizes. It will also have a focus on IT with the establishment of a new business park and data centre complex.

Latest progress:

Work was completed in 2015 to bring superfast broadband to the Templefields area and a new road access here will commence in late 2016 to improve development opportunities. At London Road, major US companies Raytheon and Arrow Electronics have confirmed long-term tenancies and the first data centre commences construction in early 2016. Harlow Council has now selected a development partner for the creation of a new Science Park on a 25 acre greenfield site. Vinci UK Developments, working with Discovery Park Ltd, have been selected as the preferred development partner. It is expected that the first construction will commence in late 2016 following the completion of a new access road. The development, for which pre-lets are currently being secured, will deliver roughly 500,000 square feet of high technology employment space.
