'Failed' Harlow is worth a second glance

Once again I come across negative prejudice of our town in your magazine (Maritz Vandenberg's letter, AJ 28.4.05).

It's sloppy and simplistic to imply that Harlow is a 'failed experiment to which the public has been subjected'. It is, in fact, full of low-rise housing, arranged in 'traditional' terraces and squares and including private gardens. Contrary to received prejudice, concrete and flat roofs are in short supply, and brick, tile and pitched roofs predominate.

I encourage you to reconsider Harlow in light of the housing debate today. I suspect the impartial will find much of relevance.

Alastair Howe, Harlow
