Harlow in Essex

Hundreds of new jobs could be created in Harlow after the government announced more funding for the West Essex Enterprise Zone. £100-million has been earmarked for schemes across the country including developing a new Medtech Innovation Centre alongside the Nortel Campus on London Road.

The announcement follows confirmation last month that the Great Yarmouth and Lowestoft Enterprise Zone in Norfolk will get £9.4-million for road improvements.
