Revised Heritage Lottery Fund bid
Following an unsuccessful application last year Harlow Council will be submitting revised and scaled-back proposals this February. It is proposed that Pets Corner will be improved and slightly enlarged on its existing site; Spurriers House will be restored externally to its pre new town state by demolishing the rather ugly 60's-built café and toilets extensions; a new professionally run café will be established on the ground floor of Spurriers House. Most of the smaller landscaping proposals of the previous bid remain.
The old nursery site (walled garden) south of Pets Corner towards Park Lane will not now be used for relocating Pets Corner. As yet there are no firm proposals, but possibilities for bringing this area back into use include a new hay barn for Pets Corner, to replace the one which will be lost when the old Marshgate Depot is redeveloped. Another part of the area could be used as a food growing demonstration area, e.g. "fork to fork" in conjunction with the café.
