Perry Road development

We are redeveloping the old Lister House site in Staple Tye into new housing.

We are building 46 apartments, at least 30% will be affordable housing. 

Why the work is needed

The existing Lister House has moved to a new site on Abercrombie Way.

The new homes will help meet the increasing demand for housing in Harlow.

This building will hopefully be the catalyst for improvement throughout the whole of Staple Tye.



Pre-planning public consultation was carried out in May 2018 for local residents and retailers.

Further drop-in consultation events took place in June 2018 at the Civic Centre.

Planning permission was granted on 21 December 2018 (HW/FUL/18/00298).

We have appointed McBains Ltd as the architect and the consultant.

The existing structure is currently being demolished.

Work started in summer 2020.

Impact on residents

During construction there will be limited disruption to local residents and road users of Southern Way and Perry Road.  However, we will look to keep this to a minimum and keep our neighbours informed, where we can.

We will ensure the contractor is a member of the Considerate Construction Scheme
