The fourth phase of the Newhall development in Harlow, Essex, has been launched by Peter Ainsworth, the shadow environment secretary.

“This is an astonishing development,” he said. “It is people-friendly, eco-friendly, looks great and feels like a liveable space.” The designer was Richard Murphy. Other architects involved were ORMS Architecture Design, ECD Architects and Roger Evans Associates. It was developed by Jon and William Moen and built by William Verry.
