Harlow Council’s website uses some unobtrusive cookies to store information on your computer or device.

Cookies are small text files. They are primarily used in order to make websites work, or work more efficiently, as well as to provide information to the owners of the site.

Cookies work by:

  • Remembering settings (where provided), so that you don’t have to keep re-entering them whenever you visit a new web page.
  • Measuring how you use the website so that it can be adjusted and improved over time to make sure it continues to meet your needs.

Some cookies on this site are essential, and the site won't work as expected without them. For example, cookies may be set when you submit a form, login or interact with the website by doing something that goes beyond clicking on simple links.

We also use some non-essential cookies to anonymously track visitors to enhance your experience of the site. We use the information to compile reports and to help us improve the site. The cookies collect information in an anonymous form, including the number of visitors to the site, where visitors have come to the site from and the pages they visited.

The information collected by these cookies is only used during the session for the benefit of the user and is not stored after the session has ended.

We need your consent to store these cookies on your device and request it in the Cookie Control pop-up at the bottom of your screen that looks like this:-
