Harlow Civic Society
was founded in 1999 to appreciate, encourage and conserve Harlow as a balanced community with a unique architectural design and heritage. We seek to uphold the ideals that went into the building of the town and to keep these ideals at the forefront of all new developments.
In the days of the Development Corporation design matters were in the hands of their planners and architects with Sir Frederick Gibberd as Master Planner, then as consultant Architect Planner. Today, with design now the responsibility of many developers, we strive to ensure that the principles of Gibberd’s Master Plan are safeguarded.
