Harlow Enterprise Zone

Harlow has been recognized by the UK Government as an excellent location for business and selected as the site for one of only 24 Enterprise Zones nationally. Enterprise Zone status is a major opportunity for Harlow and West Essex, providing a platform for economic growth and delivering benefits for business.

Harlow Enterprise Zone will focus on businesses from the Health and Allied Industries, Advanced Manufacturing and Information Communication Technology sectors and create up to 5,000 jobs.

Developed by Harlow Council in partnership with the West Essex Alliance and other key partners, Harlow Enterprise Zone was submitted to Government by the South East Local Enterprise Partnership.

"Being in Harlow has many benefits. Whilst we do not manufacture, we often have to modify equipment for clients. We can tap in to the local community of fabricators which we can call on if and when required."
