Refurbishment works begin at Pets’ Corner after additional investment by the council

Published date

Harlow’s much-loved Pets’ Corner is to receive a facelift with improvement works which began there last week.

HTS has been commissioned to deliver the improvement works, with new cladding, larger stable windows to improve viewing accessibility alongside painting and new doors, cladding and a suspended ceiling at the aquarium.

Pets’ Corner remains open while these works are being carried out, however there may be some restrictions to viewing areas on certain days when more intrusive work, such as cutting the bricks ready for the new windows, is being carried out.

Commenting on the works, Councillor Joel Charles, Deputy Leader of Harlow Council, said:

“The council is constantly looking at ways to improve the facilities at Pets’ Corner. These works will provide a much-needed facelift to some of the front-facing structures that form a key part of the surrounding enclosure. HTS has been commissioned to lead on the facelift because its project team will ensure the work is delivered to a high standard.

“Making sure Pets’ Corner is accessible to all and visits from residents are as enjoyable as possible is one of my priorities. This work programme shows that the council is serious about investing in its community facilities for the benefit of residents and is focused on improving the environment for the animals whose welfare must always come first.“
