New private sector investment in Harlow Enterprise Zone welcomed

Tuesday, 12 February, 2019

Harlow Council has welcomed the news that Kao Data at Harlow Enterprise Zone has secured investment from Legal & General to accelerate the development of its state-of-the art Data Centre facility.

Councillor Emma Toal, Portfolio Holder for Economic Growth, said: 

“This is a significant development for the Enterprise Zone and the UK Data Centre industry and shows that Harlow means business. You don’t see this kind of private sector investment unless there is real confidence in a place to do business. On the London Road site we already have a range of state-of-the-art facilities for businesses and a data centre which serves the London to Cambridge corridor. We are creating and securing Harlow’s tomorrow today and along with the multi-million pound Science Park development just nearby, we can now look forward to the development of further Data Centre buildings. We want to see the local economy grow and new opportunities created which benefit the town."
