We review the boards every month, so you need to supply your notice at least 1 month in advance of the date you’d like it to be published. 

You need to send your notice to: Community noticeboards, Harlow Council, Civic Centre, The Water Gardens Harlow, Essex CM20 1WG.

You can also bring them to the Civic Centre.

When you send your notice, make sure you indicate which board it is for.

As there is limited space, we are not able to display all notices. We will take the final decision on what will be displayed. We will remove and destroy any unauthorised material.
